I found these two examples of Bob Layton. I believe he was the inker on both, but am not sure. The Comic Reader #204 cover is with Bill Sienkiewicz; The L.A.W. #1, with Dick Giordano.

I first became really familiar with Bob Layton during the original Valiant years. Here he is inking over Joe Quesada.I love the use of blacks on it:

He draws a good Iron Man. I thought this particular image was cool.

This gives me an opportunity to say that the means by which Tony escapes the dilemma on the cover would not work. Spoiler warning. In the comic, Tony is able to dress as Iron Man while he falls. But he and the case with the suit have different terminal velocities and aerodynamic properties, so they would not have fallen at the same speed, so he would not have been able to park the case in the air next to him as he dressed.

 

There was something else about that scene that bothered me. Inside the issue, Tony's briefcase is handcuffed to his wrist. So how could he pull off his shirt and suit jacket?

I want to add that I admire the sequence: it's an imaginative and fun solution to the cliffhanger.

Maybe they were fake handcuffs to deter a thief. They could have just slipped off.

I know Layton is known for his Iron Man work, but man, I loved his efforts on the two Hercules miniseries and the graphic novel. You're in for some great reading if you haven't tried them!

Anyway, today's artist is Tom Mandrake! Post away, people!

The way he defeated Galactus was most legendary.

I should also say that the costume Layton designed for the future Hercules was always my favorite. 

Something of a much more recent vintage from Mr. Mandrake. I just love it though:

I am not buying many current comics, but this is one.

I like the use of rain to define the shadows in this one by Tom Mandrake.
