Unknown Soldier #219 - Frank Miller art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Unknown Soldier v1 #219, 1978 - One of Frank Miller's early works for DC, this back-up story chronicles the rise of the ancient Achaeans. His drawings lack polish and distinctiveness, made worse by the heavy-handed inks of Danny Bulanadi. The title page, with its use of darkened foreground shapes to increase depth, only hints of his potential. This story was later reprinted in The Art of Walt Simonson. Joe Kubert's cover design is also dampened by its noticeable lack of detail. Other artists in this issue include Fred Carrillo, Dick Ayers and Romeo Tanghal. This is number 1 of 1 Unknown Soldier issues with Miller art and/or covers.
