Sword of Sorcery #5 - Walt Simonson art & cover, Jim Starlin art

Walt Simonson
Sword of Sorcery v1 #5, 1973 - An early Walt Simonson work, he handles both the cover and main story with enthusiasm. Many pages carry the fine details characteristic of his unique style. Jim Starlin's back-up effort (also early in his career) features a solo Grey Mouser tale. Streamlined and conventionally "super-heroic" in feel, it nonetheless stands on its own merits. This is number 3 of 3 Sword of Sorcery issues with Simonson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Sword of Sorcery issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson, Starlin or Sword of Sorcery issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist, Top 10 Starlin comics or Simonson checklist.
