Miracleman v1 #4, 1985 - In repackaging the original Marvelman stories for the US market, Eclipse Comics initially used different artists for different covers. Jim Starlin provides the illustration for the fourth issue, depicting the hero's fury and intensity. His facial expression, threatening stance and tilted horizon are typical for the mainstream superhero genre. At the same time. it seems oddly out of sync with Alan Moore's sophisticated storyline. This is number 1 of 1 Miracleman issues with Starlin art and/or covers.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
