Iron Man v1 #55, 1972 - Thanos makes his first appearance, along with the bronze age version of the Destroyer. The story artwork, Jim Starlin's first full contribution to the title, displays not only his youth but his inexperience as well. Several pages are drawn crudely and many figures mis-proportioned in smaller panels. Other pages are simplistic and hurried. And yet, Starlin also shows his potential, particularly in two full splash pages and several carefully planned panel sequences. Compare the interiors to his more finely polished (thanks to veteran inker Joe Sinnott) cover design. This story was later reprinted in Life of Captain Marvel #1. This is number 2 of 6 Iron Man issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
