Marvel Preview #10 / Thor - non-attributed Jim Starlin art

Marvel Preview v1 #10 presents Thor, 1977 - Jim Starlin's two separate efforts in this issue are noticeably stark. His Thor feature story is impressive in sheer length (thirty pages) but lacking in artistry. Sadly, his pencils are buried beyond recognition by inker Tony DeZuniga. By comparison, Starlin's frontispiece is a magnificent portrait of the thunder god. Well designed and executed, it suggests being drawn earlier than the publication date. Oddly enough, comic book guides credit the artist's inside front cover, but not the interior story. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino, Alfredo Alcala, Val Mayerick, Rudy Nebres and Ken Barr (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Marvel Preview issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Marvel Preview issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
