Iron Man #82-83 (1976)

Happy masquerades as Iron Man so Tony can be seen with his bodyguard at a party.   And it looks like they’re about to kiss.

Come on, guys.  You KNOW this never ends well.

Red Ghost shows up, the super apes kidnap Happy Iron Man, etc. etc.

Here’s Tony Stark strutting through his company.

Creators: Len Wein with Herb Trimpe, Marie Severin and Jack Abel listed as “illustrators extraordinaire.”  Not sure what that means.  I’m guessing Herb did layouts, Abel did inks, and Severin did everything else.  For issue #83, it’s just Herb Trimpe and Marie Severin listed, so I’m betting she inked her own pencils over Herb’s layouts.
Grade: D
