Vampirella #44 - Neal Adams art


Vampirella v1 #44, 1975 - Warren Publishing often used their inside front covers as intro pages, usually narrated by the series host. Vampirella sets the tone in this issue, even as she turns away to glimpse the nightmarish creature behind her. Neal Adams' inside cover is sumptuously drawn. His impeccable drawing skills are reinforced by the subtle modeling of light and shade on the figures. Although I'd have preferred it in full color, the duotone printing takes very little away from the final result. This is number 3 of 3 Vampirella issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Vampirella issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
