Where Monsters Dwell #20 - Jim Starlin cover, Jack Kirby reprint

Jim Starlin
Where Monsters Dwell v1 #20, 1973 - As is often the case, the alien and marauding robot on the cover bear almost no resemblance to the story inside. Jim Starlin's layout is overcrowded with figures and his pencils seem buried under Frank Giacioa's inks. Suspiciously inconsistent in style, the soldiers may have been last minute additions by the Marvel bullpen. This issue also features "Klagg", a Jack Kirby reprint from Tales of Suspense #21. This is number 2 of 2 Where Monsters Dwell issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin, Kirby or Where Monsters Dwell issues.

  1. I'd guess the inker on this cover is Frank Giacoia. It looks like his touch in the backgrounds especially.

  2. Looks that way to me too. Thanks for the info!
