The Spectre v1 #5, 1968 - The Psycho Pirate attempts to regain his powers, creating a gargantuan in the process. Neal Adams opens the story with clever typography incorporated into the background, setting the stage for his exotically remote prologue. Contrasts in scale play a major part of the plot, deftly visualized and emphasized by the artist. His two full page splashes of enormous figures are dramatic enough, but both are overshadowed by a center spread of a enraged Tyrannosaurus Rex. Adams' final issue of the series is also his most powerfully drawn. This is number 4 of 4 Spectre issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Spectre issues.
