Weird Worlds #2 - Neal Adams art


Weird Worlds v3 #2, 1972 - A showcase for Edgar Rice Burroughs' less known heroes, the series features John Carter, Warlord of Mars and David Innes in Pellucidar. Alan Weiss ably draws the latter feature, aided by C. Bunker, an abbreviation of "Crusty Bunker". This pseudonym was used during the bronze age by an informal group of artists, often led by Neal Adams. Weiss' style has a striking similarity, but as the story progresses Adams' inks become more recognizable. His detailed shading adds dimension and clarity to the pencils. Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson and Joe Orlando (cover). This is number 1 of 2 Weird Worlds issues with Adams art and/or covers.

  1. Berni Wrightson inked the gorilla men on the first two pages of "Slaves of the Mahars." This was the first comics story inked by the Crusty Bunkers (Continuity Associates artists such as owner/operator Neal Adams, as well as Ralph Reese, Al Weiss, Jim Starlin, Larry Hama, Greg Theakston, and Berni Wrightson). They also worked on SWORD OF SORCERY #1 and 3 over Howard Chaykin's pencils shortly afterwards.
