Pop Focus: A Stan Goldberg cover gallery

Veteran comics artist Stan Goldberg passed away earlier this week at age 82.

Best-known for his decades of work on the various Archie Comics titles, he was also the colorist on many of Marvel's early superhero books. And he teamed with writer Stan Lee for many years on Millie the Model.

Goldberg drew hundreds of covers, but hopefully the smattering below provides a good representation of the work he produced over a long career that gave joy and provided lots of laughs to generations of comics fans.

My 11-year-old daughter is a big Archie reader, so I've seen loads of Stan's work around the house over the past several years.

Goldberg retired from Archie in 2010, but his work still appears regularly in the company's various digests and reprint titles, and likely will continue to do so for many years to come.

One of Goldberg's last works, an Archie-style short scripted by Tom DeFalco and featuring Peter (Spider-Man) Parker, is set to appear in a Marvel 75th anniversary special out next month. You can see a page from it below.
