Star Spangled War Stories #134 - Neal Adams art

Star Spangled War Stories v1 #134, 1967 - Capitalizing on a "dinosaur" trend, this war title began incorporating them into covers and stories beginning with Star Spangled War #90. Russ Heath does a terrific job with the cover, illustrating a PT boat caught in a monster's grasp. Neal Adams opens the story with an enlarged panel from page 13, which consequently loses detail. Overall though, the artist does an admirable job, expertly drawing an array of prehistoric creatures. A notable highlight is a panel on page 10, depicting a T-Rex attacking from above while sailors hurl grenades from below. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel. This is number 1 of 2 Star Spangled War issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Star Spangled War issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
