Captain Marvel v2 #33, 1974 - Thanos the god has a final confrontation with Captain Marvel, with the universe at stake (naturally). Klaus Janson inks Jim Starlin's story pencils for the first time, providing more detail and dimension than before. While effective with many artists, the approach clashes with Starlin's more graphical, streamlined style. Regardless, the artist's carefully constructed layouts and innovative pacing techniques remain intact. Three full page splashes emphasizes Thano's enormous, more god-like scale. Most compelling is Starlin's excellent cover design. The villain dominates the scene, while Captain Marvel's smaller figure appears to be faltering. Sharply and cleanly defined, the cover offers a marked contrast with the interiors. This story was later reprinted in Life of Captain Marvel #5. This is number 9 of 12 Captain Marvel issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Captain Marvel issues.
