Warlock #15 - Jim Starlin art & cover

Warlock v1 #15, 1976 - His own galaxy denied to him, Warlock finds a remote planet to confront the vampiric soul gem on his head. Jim Starlin's cover displays a montage of characters within the issue. The thickly drawn lines and poor reproduction obscure many of the finer details, diminishing its impact. By contrast, the story art is beautifully rendered, from the opening splash to the soul gem's emerald-colored environment on pages 26-27. Not coincidentally, Starlin inks his own pencils, contributing to the artwork's success. Though uncredited, Steve Leialoha may have also lent a hand on the last four pages. This story was first reprinted in Warlock v2 #4. This is number 7 of 7 Warlock issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Warlock issues.
