Fear #11 / Man-Thing - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
(Adventure into) Fear v1 #11 with the Man-Thing, 1972 - For the first nine issues, this title reprinted Atlas monster stories from the 1960s. Original material began with the tenth issue, featuring the Man-Thing in his first solo book after his premiere in Savage Tales #1. Here the character marks his third appearance, starting with this terrific Neal Adams cover. The juxtaposition of children with monsters was a common theme on the artist's DC works, but works just as well in this case. The cropped-in frame confines the illustration a bit too much, but this is largely offset by Adams' keen sense of lighting and mood. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Jim Mooney. This is number 1 of 1 Fear issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Fear issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
