Bob Layton left with issue #152, followed by a series of fill-ins and David Michelinie writing without Layton. The overall writing quality dimmed significantly–but we did get some cool art from Paul Smith (above) in #159, and interesting Steve Ditko work in #160.

But all of this was to make way in #161 for the new creative team of Denny O’Neil and Luke McDonnell. Great, great Iron Man stories coming soon!
