Captain Marvel v2 #25, 1973 - Sporting a colorful new uniform, the title character is beset by friends and foes alike on this early Jim Starlin cover. Inside, the artist begins his run the series, eventually revitalizing the character. His drawing skills are generally unpolished, further hampered by Chic Stone's insensitive inking. However, Starlin's layout designs and sense of pacing hint at his future potential. The sequence of small panels on page 8 and the imaginary battle scene on page 15 show a fresh and distinctive approach. This story was later reprinted in Life of Captain Marvel #1. This is number 1 of 12 Captain Marvel issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Captain Marvel issues.
