Iron Man Cover

I left this magazine at the studio and am posting this from home, so I didn’t have the exact date of publication.

Thanks to this muscle memory site, I found it. It is Vol 32, Num 6 published in September 1973 and features Mike Besikof, who was Mr. California in the same year.

“Despite coming off a recent bout with the flu, Mike presented a fine physique with deep muscularity. His legs could use more cuts, however.”

This was another garage sale find. There’s something about the fonts and the colours that are so appealing.
