Marvel Super Action #1 / Punisher - Mike Ploog art


Marvel Super Action (magazine) v1 #1 featuring the Punisher, 1976 - Featuring the Punisher, this one shot issue also contains the frenetic adventures of Dominic Fortune and the Huntress. By contrast, writer Doug Moench and Mike Ploog introduce a fantasy realm called Weirdworld. An elf-like hero named Tyndall of Klarn is tasked with journeying to the Region of Shadows and killing the heart of evil. Curiously, a decorative band is placed atop all of the pages, filling in the extra space. Perhaps the story was originally drawn for a regular comic book format? Nonetheless, Ploog illustrates the pages with enthusiastic detail and consummate skill. Weirdworld would next appear in Marvel Premiere #38. Other artists in this issue include Bob Larkin, Tony DeZuniga, Howard Chaykin, Rico Rival, Howard Chaykin, George Evans and Frank Springer. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Super Action issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog or Marvel Super Action issues.
