Action Comics #425 - Neal Adams art


Action Comics v1 #425, 1973 - In this issue's back-up tale, Christopher Chance lives up to his name, the Human Target, by putting himself in harm's way. Neal Adams' pencils are adequate, slightly enhanced by creative sequencing and layouts (see interor page above). Dick Giordano's inks tend to dominate in this case, but not to the detriment of the overall artwork. This is Adams' only story art of the entire series and his only rendition of the Human Target. Other artists in this issue include Dick Dillin, Mike Esposito, Frank Giacoia, Curt Swan, Murphy Anderson and Nick Cardy (cover). See today's posts or more Adams or Action Comics issues.
