Creatures on the Loose #22 - Jim Steranko cover, Steve Ditko reprint

Creatures On The Loose v1 #22 marvel 1970s bronze age comic book cover art by Jim Steranko
Jim Steranko
Creatures on the Loose v1 #22 featuring Thongor, 1973 - Thongor, Warrior of Lost Lemuria, makes his first appearance in comics, adding to the already crowded field of bronze age barbarians. The hero draws his sword against an array of creatures, while an exotically dressed woman lies helpless behind him. Jim Steranko does an adequate job despite the overused theme and abundance of cover text. Note how the sword follows the same angle as the hero's leg and the appropriately eerie smoke and urn the right. The issue also contains a Steve Ditko reprint from Tales of Suspense #39. This is number 2 of 2 Creatures on the Loose issues with Steranko art and/or covers.

  1. Inks look like BWSmith, or is Steranko imitating his style?

  2. Interesting point. Still looks consistent with Steranko's style to me...
