Avengers annual #16 - Marshall Rogers, non-attributed Al Williamson art

Avengers annual v1 #16, 1987 - The Grandmaster seeks to begin the universe anew by destroying the current one. The Avengers and West Coast Avengers joins forces against dead heroes and super-villains. The story divides into several chapters, each drawn by a different artist. Marshall Rogers illustrates a Silver Surfer segment (see interior page below), sadly a mediocre effort during his least impressive period. Al Williamson does marginally better with his inks over Keith Pollard's chaotic pencils. Perhaps the first two pages are his most memorable. Other artists in this issue include Jackson Guice, Kevin Nowlan and others. This is number 1 of 1 Avengers annual issues with Rogers art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Avengers annual issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers, Williamson or Avengers issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist, Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.
