Escape from LokiSteve Assel painted a single Doc Savage Bantam cover: Escape from Loki. According to an interview with Will Murray, Phillip Jose Farmer had Assel repaint the cover to remove a Tommy-gun that Savage was cradling and replace it with a .45 automatic. Murray said Farmer was “adamant that the cover faithfully reflect the story.”

Fred Pfeiffer took over the Bantam Doc Savage covers after James Bama left. He painted 13 covers from #68 (Quest of the Spider) through #81 (The Stone Man). The cover for The South Pole Terror was reused for The Stone Man.

pfeiffer_fred“He had to start after Bama. No one could have got that gig and not heard from the Doc Bama crowd. I don’t know anyone that could have done it and pulled it off. Time has seen many who didn’t grasp hold of Fred’s style right off are learning now what a talented creator he was. He had the guts to do his own thing with Doc and he didn’t try to copy Bama. I love his Doc covers, they are powerful and to me Doc looks metal.” — Scotty Philips, ThePulp.Net (2011)
