Marvel Feature #1 / Defenders - Neal Adams cover

Marvel Feature v1 #1 Defenders marvel comic book cover art by Neal Adams
Neal Adams
Marvel Feature v1 #1 featuring The Defenders, 1971 - The Defenders make their first appearance in this historic king-sized issue. Are they responding to the destruction around them or did they cause it? Neal Adams' depiction of founding members Doctor Strange, Sub-mariner and the Hulk is easily among his best Marvel covers. The artist's skill is evident throughout, but the foreshortened limbs of the Hulk are especially convincing. I believe this cover is also Adams' first rendition of each of the characters. Bill Everett inks Ross Andru's pencils on the interior story, accompanied by a golden age Sub-mariner reprint by Everett. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck and Frank Giacioa. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Feature issues with Adams art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Adams, Defenders or Marvel Feature issues.
