Spellbound v2 #1 - non-attributed Marshall Rogers cover

Marshall Rogers

Spellbound v2 #1, 1988 - This limited series introduces Erica Fortune, a young college professor who discovers newfound powers through inter-dimensional bracelets. The character skews toward a female audience, one of many that Marvel created during the 70s and 80s. Marshall Rogers is tasked with designing the covers, and does the job ably. The heroine is prominently featured while displaying the super-powered effects emanating from her hands. It has to be said that the interior artwork by Terry Shoemaker and Carl Potts is also nicely done. This is number 1 of 6 Spellbound covers by Rogers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Spellbound issues. See also this blog's Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.

  1. Reminds me of Walt Simonson's Thor work.

  2. Good point, although I wonder how many artists started emulating Simonson after the success of his phenomenal Thor run.
