Hercules Unbound #11 - Walt Simonson art & cover

Walt Simonson
Hercules Unbound v1 #11, 1977 - Hercules dons a new costume, just as Kevin starts manifesting new powers and a new threat to Earth emerges. Walt Simonson, inking his own pencils, finally reaches his potential on this series. Both his cover and inside story are artfully drawn in his own distinctive style. Particularly noteworthy are the dual sequences on page 7 and the daring splashes on the first and last pages. Not surprisingly, this story was later reprinted in The Art of Walt Simonson. This is number 5 of 6 Hercules Unbound issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Hercules Unbound issues. See also this blog's Simonson checklist.
