Metal Men v1 #48, 1976 - Eclipso, a super-villain first introduced in House of Secrets #61, searches for an ancient hieroglyphic stone. His alter ego's fiance', Mona Bennet, asks the Metal Men to find him before he endangers the planet. Their travels allow artist Walt Simonson opportunity to depict settings as diverse as Germany and Peru. Panels seem smaller and more numerous, but are generally well managed by the artist. Like the Metal Men, Eclipso's distorted face and costume design seem tailor-made for Simonson's linear style. This story was later reprinted in The Art of Walt Simonson. This is number 4 of 7 Metal Men issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Metal Men issues. See also this blog's Simonson checklist.
