I can't argue with his list (except perhaps John Buscema), but wouldDoctor Strange said:(Stealing a minute to respond!)
Those Spider-Man and X-Men comics are certainly great, but the stuff I most enjoyed during my mid-70s Marvel days were Jim Starlin's tripped-out Captain Marvel and Warlock runs, the amazing Barry Smith Conans, and the Englehart/Brunner Doctor Strange (though my favorite DS of the period was the one-shot that preceded that run in Marvel Premiere with script by Lee and art by Barry Smith... Smith's style was just perfect for Doctor Strange).
And I loved John Buscema's continuing work (with Lee, then Thomas, scripts) on Fantastic Four, The Avengers, and Thor. Kirby was a tough act to follow, but Buscema, like Romita, was a real pro whose comics always looked great and told the story effectively.
add Kaluta's run on The Shadow and Simonson and Goodwin's Manhunter.
