Marvel Spotlight #1 / Red Wolf - Neal Adams cover, Wally Wood art

Neal Adams
Marvel Spotlight v1 #1 on Red Wolf, 1971 - Originally introduced in Avengers #80, Red Wolf premieres in this first solo issue before graduating to his own series. An astonishing Neal Adams cover sets the tone, depicting the Native American hero on the attack. Exquisitely drawn, the artist brings a fresh perspective to the western genre. Red Wolf's origin story is thoughtfully embellished by Wally Wood. Looser and more spontaneous, his inks add a painterly feel to Syd Shores' pencils. The frontier characters and settings benefit from his more traditional yet richly illustrative style. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Spotlight issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Marvel Spotlight issues with Adams art and/or covers.
