This edition of “Top 10 Covers” brings us Mike “Romita Man” Burkey.  No one is a bigger expert or fan on John Romita art than Mike Burkey.  So when I wanted a Top 10 list of Romita covers there really was no one else to turn to.  Mike is also one of the largest and most beloved dealers of original comic book art in the country.  I’ve both purchased and sold pages with Mike in the past and he truly is one of the very best.  Be sure to check his website out, RomitaMan.com!
