Journey into Mystery v2 #3 - Jim Starlin art


Journey into Mystery v2 #3, 1973 - A Robert Bloch adaptation begins the issue, weakly rendered and composed by Jim Starlin. Far from his usual standards, the layouts are mediocre and the pacing monotonous. Three sequential pages adhere to a rigid twelve panel grid with too few variations in drawings. Even Tom Palmer, one of the finest inkers of the bronze age, could not salvage the pencils. This story was later reprinted in Masters of Terror #1. Other artists in this issue include Sam Kweskin, Ernie Chua, Joe Maneely (reprint) and Gil Kane/Tom Palmer (cover). This is number 3 of 3 Journey into Mystery issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
