The Cat v2 #4 - Jim Starlin art


(Beware The Claws of) The Cat v2 #4, 1972 - According to the opening credits, both Jim Starlin and Al Weiss share artistic duties for this final issue of the series. Weiss appears to have drawn most of the female figures throughout (including the title character), which are elongated and distorted to the point of inconsistency. With the exception of the first two pages, Starlin appears to have done the bulk of the layouts. His pencils are evident on most of the backgrounds and remaining figures. The Man-Bull's dramatic entrance on page five, panel three falls conspicuously flat. Starlin's poor executions contribute to an overall disappointing effort. This is number 1 of 1 Cat issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Cat or Starlin issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
