Vampirella #78 - Jim Starlin art


Vampirella v1 #78, 1979 - Jim Starlin provides the art for one of the back-up stories in this issue. A male space traveler visits a different woman on every planet, attending to her needs. This Bruce Jones script cleverly revamps the role of gender and sexuality in a science fiction setting. Sadly, Starlin's pencils are submerged beneath the heavy handed inks of Alfredo Alcala. Except for an interesting repeat pattern of bedroom scenes on several pages, the innovative layouts he's known for are largely absent. This is number 1 of 1 Vampirella issues with Starlin art and/or covers. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath.
