Supernatural Thrillers v1 #2 featuring Invisible Man, 1972 - This adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel begins with a revelation: The Invisible Man unwraps his disguise to the horror of tavern patrons. His scarf seems to float in mid-movement and the bandages fall in an aesthetically pleasing spiral. Jim Steranko enhances the scene with period clothing and interiors that are convincingly detailed. Although I would have preferred a smaller masthead and bigger illustration, this is still the artist's best cover of the late 1970s. Other artists in this issue include Dan Adkins and Val Mayerick. This is number 2 of 2 Supernatural Thrillers issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or Supernatural Thrillers issues.
