Iron Man #100 - Jim Starlin cover

Iron Man v1 #100, 1977 - Touting the one hundredth issue, Jim Starlin does a splendid job designing the cover. Iron Man snaps a steel girder in two, calling attention to the masthead. In the background, stone-carved numerals splinter and crack from age. Note how the hero's right leg is shadowed, positioning it further back for more interesting symmetry and depth. Starin's layout is deceptively simple yet powerful. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska and Mike Esposito. This is number 4 of 6 Iron Man issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
