Ironjaw #1 - Neal Adams cover (1st Ironjaw)

Ironjaw v1 #1 atlas seaboard comic book cover art by Neal AdamsIronjaw v1 #1, 1975 - One of Atlas/Seaboard's few barbarian titles, this premiere issue boasts a fine Neal Adams cover. Ironjaw stands on higher ground, fending off enemies while a damsel lies at his feet. Although an overused theme, the artist's triangular layout works extremely very well. Far better than the interior story art, Adams brings excitement and increased attention to the title. For comparison, see Barry Smith's similar cover on Marvel Treasury Edition #4. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky and Jack Abel. This is number 1 of 2 Ironjaw issues with Adams art and/or covers.
