Amazing Spider-man #218 - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller
Amazing Spider-man v1 #218, 1981 - Frank Miller never seems to tire from drawing block-shaped creatures, as on this eye-catching cover. The creature's rough textures nicely contrast against the more tightly rendered buildings below. The bright colors seems a tad optimistic for the scene, but it is appealing nonetheless. Other artists in this issue include John Romita Jr., Al Milgrom and Jim Mooney. This is number 1 of 2 Amazing Spider-man issues with Miller art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Miller or Amazing Spider-Man issues. See also this blog's Miller checklist.

  1. You can see his Ronin style emerging in this piece. Especially in the buildings.

  2. I see what you mean. Every artist seems to have a natural progression, hopefully to something as unique as Ronin.
