Amazing Adventures v3 #8featuring the Inhumans and Black Widow, 1970 - As Black Bolt threatens to raze the city, Thor intervenes to find a peaceful resolution. Neal Adams does his best opening splash yet, featuring the Avengers huddled as they watch the imminent threat on the evening news. Beautifully composed and dimensional, the scene suffers only slightly less than the remaining pages. Unfortunately, John Verpoorten's inks fall short in both clarity and aesthetics. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck and Bill Everett. This is number 4 of 5 Amazing Adventures issues with Adams art and/or covers.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
