Amazing Adventures v3 #17 - Jim Starlin art & cover

Jim Starlin
Amazing Adventures v3 #17 featuring the Beast, 1973 - Missed deadlines result in mostly reprints for this issue. Originally from the X-men, these back-up stories shed additional light on the origins of the Beast. Despite this, Jim Starlin does a wonderful job on both his colorful cover and two framing pages inside. Note the styles of the different inkers. Curiously, the artist's name is misspelled "Starling" on the opening page. This is number 3 of 4 Amazing Adventures v3 issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Amazing Adventures issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.

  1. I'm not 100% certain, but the cover inks are possibly by Frank Giacoia.

  2. Really? I would have thought Al Milgrom. Can anyone else verify?

  3. I can't verify, but the "bold" brush work on the blue Beast, especially in the fingers, looks like Giacoia.
