Vault of Evil #2 - Jim Starlin / Mike Ploog cover

Jim Starlin / Mike Ploog

Vault of Evil v1 #2, 1973 - The masthead takes up roughly half the space on this crowded cover. Jim Starlin and Mike Ploog make the best of it with a concise z-shaped layout. Starlin extends the grim reaper and his scythe beyond the frame, gaining depth in the process. Mike Ploog's inks dominate the pencils, resulting in a strikingly eerie design. The duo also collaborated on another bronze age horror book, Journey into Mystery v2 #1. Other artists in this issue include Howie Post. This is number 1 of 1 Vault of Evil issues with Starlin art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Vault of Evil issues with Ploog art and/or covers.
