Captain Marvel v2 #28, 1973 -The Avengers enter the fray, joining Captain Marvel in stopping the world conquering Thanos. Jim Starlin's opening splash of the heroes is more artistic and forceful than previous issues (despite John Romita's modifications on Captain America). Page layouts vary wildly but effectively, especially the dream-like distortions (page 14) and the Cosmic Cube's introduction (page 21). Perhaps Starlin's most impressive feat is page 18 (see interior page below), a mosaic of small panels that communicate events in almost complete silence. This story was later reprinted in Life of Captain Marvel #2 abd Life of Captain Marvel #3. This is number 4 of 12 Captain Marvel issues with Starlin art and/or covers.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
