Thor #181 - Neal Adams art

Thor v1 #181, 1970 - Trapped in Hades while in the guise of Loki, Thor must not only escape, but stop his half-brother's path of destruction on Earth. Neal Adams' pencils are streamlined but somewhat hidden beneath the inks of Joe Sinnott. Even more confusing, he illustrates a recap of the previous issues (page 3) in a style similar to Jack Kirby. Still, Adams' influence emerges often enough to be singular. The panels featuring Mephisto and the splash of Thor lifting a giant crane (page 16) are among the most memorable scenes. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema and Marie Severin (cover). This is number 3 of 3 Thor issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Thor issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
