Shogun Warriors #19 (Marvel – 1980)
Cover art by Herb Trimpe
A lot of fan-boys my age remember their beloved Mattel Shogun Warrior toys and I had those too…but when I think Shogun Warriors I remember the short-lived but crazy fun Marvel comic. This cover by the tragically under-rated Herb Trimpe has a fantastic angled perspective that emphasizes the huge size of the Shoguns. Good stuff. Come back tomorrow night for #98.
