Rampaging Hulk #4 - Jim Starlin / Alex Nino, Marshall Rogers art, Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Rampaging Hulk v1 #4, 1977 - A Jim Starlin cover evokes a powerful yet mysterious tone, setting the stage for the main feature inside. A alien wizard kidnaps the Hulk in an act of desperation for his cause. Starlin's pencils transform into otherworldly images, thanks to Alex Nino's distinctive inking. The combination results in visually lush pages, grounded by astute pacing and brilliant layouts. The two page spread on pages 28-29 is both chaotic and beautiful. An introductory page by Marshall Rogers begins the back-up Bloodstone story. Other artists in this issue include Val Mayerik, Sonny Trinidad and Keith Giffen. This is number 1 of 3 Rampaging Hulk issues with Starlin art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Rampaging Hulk issues with Nino art and/or covers.
