It's been awhile since I've picked up any classic Valiant art but I was lucky to find this one recently.
Here's an example of how the color process played an important role in the story as Solar "paints" Gayle with the color light prism.

Solar Man of the Atom #2 page 1 color art
Don Perlin pencils, Bob Layton inks, Kathryn Bolinger colors.

Dan, congrats on the color covers! How do you keep finding them after all these years? :P

I got this Harbinger Files page years ago (page 12 pencilled by Dave Cockrum and inked by Gonzalo Mayo).

I picked up this Faith and The Future Force cover recently from David LaFuente.
The price was reasonable and the 1974 and 2003 dates are relevant to me.
