Animated Comic Book Cornerbox Art

Arthur Adams' animation work on 1985's Longshot miniseries:
Hulk animation is by Al Milgrom from The Incredible Hulk #292 - #300.  Interestingly, this animation mirrors the story in the books of Bruce Banner's intellect losing controlling The Hulk.
Magik was a four-issue comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics in 1983–1984.  The corner box artwork shows what happened while the character was in Limbo, aging and being corrupted by demons:
In 1988, DC's Power of the Atom series ends with a shrinking, (then disappearing) Atom on the covers! (This is the only instance I could find in DC books Unsurprising, since corner box art wasn't really their thing...):
Dork Note: If anyone knows of any others please drop me a line.

Bonus images!  Two unused designs:
