Weird Mystery Tales #4 - Jim Starlin art

Weird Mystery Tales v1 #4, 1972 - One of his earliest works for DC, Jim Starlin draws a tale of a bank robber taking refuge in a dilapidated hotel. The art falls short of expectations, yet Starlin makes full use of the two pages. Building suspense with a series of small, even-sized panels, a climactic full page is revealed at the end. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Bill Draut, Romy Gamboa, Michael Kaluta and Jim Aparo (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Weird Mystery Tales issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Weird Mystery Tales issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
