Bob Larkin (born July 10, 1949) is an American artist primarily known for his painted covers for Marvel Comics' magazine-format titles, published under the imprints of Curtis Magazines and Marvel Magazines in the 1970s and early 1980s.
A prolific and accomplished painter, Larkin's many credits include titles such as The Savage Sword of Conan, Marvel Super Special, Marvel Preview, The Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu, Planet of the Apes, and Tomb of Dracula. Larkin also painted covers for many of the Marvel Fireside Books paperback collections, lending them a simple, movie-poster feel. He did the same thing for the cover to the first major intercompany crossover, Superman and Spider-Man. In addition, Marvel occasionally tapped Larkin to paint covers for premiere issues of such comic book titles as Dazzler and The Saga of Crystar.
Besides his work for Marvel, Larkin has painted covers for Vampirella and The Rook (Warren Publishing), The Amazing Adventures of Holo-Man (Peter Pan Records), Lorelei: Building the Perfect Beast (StarWarp Concepts), and many others.
Larkin also provided covers to Bantam Books reprints of Doc Savage, and is considered second only to James Bama for his covers.
Larkin's artwork also adorns World Wrestling Entertainment merchandise featuring The Rock, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Kane, and Chris Jericho.
With wife Fran, Larkin is the father of a son named Ken and two daughters, Claire and Holly.
