Jungle Action v2 featuring the Black Panther #3, 1973 - The Black Panther, his back against the wall, is poised to strike against an unseen enemy. This centered figure placement is commonly used on covers, although few artists can make it distinctive. John Byrne uses the perspective of a brick pattern to draw focus to the hero, while the circular spotlight creates a cohesive frame. Unfortunately, Byrne's style is indistinguishable from many other Marvel covers of the era. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Syd Shores. This is number 1 of 1 Jungle Action issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Jungle Action issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
