Steranko was a huge fan of the golden age, and he brought much of those qualities, with improvements, to us monkeyboys of the 60s.

Hey Look! Steranko Covers!
It was such a treat, back in the late 60s, to come up to a comic spinner in the drug store and find comics with Steranko covers. Of course it WAS still the Silver Age, so there would also be covers by Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, Gil Kane, Curt Swan, Jack Kirby, Infantino, on and on (SWEET Sixties). But covers by Jim Steranko were more rare than the others and they always compelled me to buy the comic without even looking inside. And sometimes it was a double treat to find Steranko art inside, such as the X-Men comic shown below.
