Iron Man v1 #163, 1982 - Iron Man's figure seems initially awkward, but Jim Starlin's severe tilt of the horizon makes it almost justifiable. While not always successful, the clean white background makes it easy to frame the characters and focal point of the scene. Starlin's division of space is skillfully balanced, perfecting the layout. The placement of two chess pieces not only reflects the villain's theme, but reinforces the chessboard below. Other artists in this issue include Luke McDonnell and Steve Mitchell. This is number 6 of 6 Iron Man issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
