Marvel Fanfare #18 - Frank Miller art & cover

Frank Miller
Marvel Fanfare v1 #18, 1985 - A Brooklyn neighborhood is terrorized by a band of arsonists, forcing Captain America to take action. This Frank Miller tale is much earlier than the publication date, possibly a tryout exercise for Marvel. Even so, many of his visual techniques are evident, from the dynamic figure drawing to the careful sequencing. Highlights include a wide panorama of working firefighters on page 3. By contrast, Miller's front and back covers are drawn in his more recent, rough linear style. Other artists in this issue include Kevin Nowlan and Terry Austin. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Fanfare issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller, Marvel Fanfare or Captain America issues. See also this blog's Miller checklist.
