Fantastic Four #130 - Jim Steranko cover

Fantastc Four v1 #130 marvel comic book cover art by Jim Steranko
Jim Steranko
Fantastic Four v1 #130, 1973 - Jim Steranko does his first of three Fantastic Four covers. The placement of no less than six figures is a challenge for anyone, but here the artist balances the background chaos with an enlarged Thing in the foreground. The contrast makes the layout more compelling while increasing the depth of the scene. Joe Sinnott isn't quite the best match stylistically,& but his inking doesn't detract from the pencils. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema. This is number 1 of 3 Fantastic Four issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or Fantastic Four issues.
