Not only he took the time for the interview, Bob was kind enough to give us his top 5 favourite covers. Here's what he had to say …

There are far too many great comic covers to pick only five. I just picked some I admire by my favorite artists, and one of my own I like.

La Piste Des Navajos by Jean Giraud

Giraud's painting style is amazing. It looks deceptively simple, but it's actually very difficult to do.
Frazetta, of course, is unparalleled.

Eerie #23 by Frank Frazetta

Justice League of America #138 by Neal Adams

Neal has so many great covers, but I always liked the way he drew Adam Strange on that cover.

Weird Science #15 by Wally Wood

I did a redo of Woody's WS15 cover once, changing one of the figures to a woman, and it was a lot of fun. My redo is here: http://bobmcleod.com/ws15lg.jpg

New Mutants #8 by Bob McLeod

I wasn't asked to do covers very often, but I had fun on my NM covers.

    Awesome you’ve got this dialogue going with him Scott. That Giraud cover is ver cool. And the New Mutants, of course.

    Yeah, Bob was very gracious with his time to me. I wish him continued success in everything that he does. I personally like his New Mutants #2 cover myself, I love his Sentinels.

    I will say that his favorites are a variety of styles, it is very diverse.
