Doc Savage v2 #2, 1973 - The hero stands before an ancient South American pyramid, surrounded by cult figures and warriors. Jim Steranko captures Doc Savage in a moment of hesitation, unsure of his next move while fires blaze in the background. The artist's drawings of pre-Columbian statuary and other decorative details not only are exemplary, but have the feel of authenticity. The entire scene seems to be a precursor to the Indiana Jones films which would come a few years later. Other artists in this issue include Ross Andru and Ernie Chan. This is number 1 of 2 Doc Savage issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
