Marvel Feature #8 / Ant Man - Jim Starlin art & cover

Jim Starlin
Marvel Feature v1 #8 featuring the Ant-Man, 1972 - Nearing a deadline, this bronze age title resorts to reprinting the Wasp's origin from Tales to Astonish #44. Jim Starlin supplies a new cover, poorly drawn and extremely convoluted. Inside, his two of four framing pages (shared with P. Craig Russell) are just as disappointing. Figures are squeezed into panels rather than carefully placed. Perhaps the artist could have performed better with a greater allotment of pages. This is number 1 of 3 Marvel Feature issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Marvel Feature. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
