DC Comics Presents #93 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
DC Comics Presents v1 #93, 1986 - Combining multiple heroes with stretching powers is both a clever and amusing idea. Jim Starlin plays up the absurdity and redundancy of these characters (Elongated Man, Plastic Man, Jimmy Olsen and Malleable Man) on his wildly humorous cover. Superman stands in the center of entwined, spaghetti-like limbs while the story's antagonist boldly poses in front of the masthead. Few artists could pull off this visual concept as effortlessly as Starlin has. Other artists in this issue include Alex Saviuk and Kurt Schaffenberger. This is number 7 of 7 DC Comics Presents issues with Starlin art and/or covers.

  1. Cool, I bought that one not too long ago and enjoyed the cover, as well as the nice interior art.
