Astonishing Tales #19 - Jim Starlin art

Astonishing Tales v1 #19 featuring Ka-Zar, 1973 - The issue's opening credits list Dan Adkins and Jack Abel as story artists, yet some comic book guides also make an attribution to Jim Starlin. While his style is not evident on the first several pages, it becomes clearer on the last six or so pages. The layouts and panel sequences alone are indicative of his work, especially the multi-figured combat scene on page 17. Still, there is a clumsiness and uncertainty in many of the drawings, making this issue far from Starlin's best work. Other artists in this issue include John Romita (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Astonishing Tales issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin, Astonishing Tales or Ka-zar issues.

  1. I never cared too much for Kazar but that captain Marvel was pretty good.
