Dave Cockrum & Chris Claremont at Eldorado Comics in Pennsauken, NJ Late 70s

David Emmett Cockrum (November 11, 1943[1] ? November 26, 2006) was an American comic book artist known for his co-creation of the new X-Men characters Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus. Cockrum was also a prolific and inventive costume designer, who updated the uniforms of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and did the same for the new X-Men and many of their antagonists, in the 1970s and early 1980s.

The above picture of Dave & Chris was taken at my first comic book store, El Dorado Comics on Westfield Ave in Pennsauken, NJ. I believe the year was 1979. I would have been 10 or 11.

Godzilla #24 Cover Concept Art by Dave Cockrum

Many of you may not realize but Dave Cockrum did the preliminary designs for many of Marvel Comic's covers in the 70s & 80s. He would sketch the concept & another artist would follow his guide & create the actual cover.
