The Spectre v1 #4, 1968 - Through mysterious circumstances, a small boy is possessed by an entity with globally destructive powers. The Spectre travels to multiple places in space and time, demanding a wide variety of scenes and settings. Neal Adams skillfully meets this challenge, drawing everything from plagues of locusts to alien warcraft (see interior page shown below). His textured backgrounds and optical effects add to the tale's supernatural tone without sacrificing the quality of his art. Adams' cover takes one of the interior scenes and expands upon it, making it bolder and more dynamic than the original. This is number 3 of 4 Spectre issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Spectre issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
