Astonishing Tales #16 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Astonishing Tales v1 #16 featuring Ka-Zar, 1972 - Bursting through a comics page, Ka-Zar and his saber-tooth tiger Zabu reach out towards the reader in true heroic fashion. Jim Starlin's figures appear more cohesive due to the circular shape behind them. The monochrome color assigned to Gil Kane's background page (from a previous issue) allows for maximum depth. Starlin's layout has an iconic quality, well executed but perhaps more suited to a first edition rather than an ongoing issue. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Chic Stone. This is number 1 of 2 Astonishing Tales issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
