Avengers annual #7 - Jim Starlin art & cover

Jim Starlin
Avengers v1 annual #7, 1977 - Building on Jim Starlin's plots from Warlock and Captain Marvel, the Avengers face the invasion of the galactic warlord Thanos. Terrific storytelling is augmented by superbly crafted visuals. Highlights include a splash of diverse alien lifeforms battling the Avengers (page 30) and the quietly introspective portraits of the heroes (pages 22-23). While the artwork alone is excellent, Starlin's impeccably designed layouts and sequences are even more impressive. Later reprinted in Warlock v2 #5 and v2 #6, this epic storyline continues in Marvel Two In One annual #2. This is number 1 of 1 Avengers annual issues with Starlin art and/or covers.
