Phase #1 - Neal Adams, Jeff Jones, Bernie Wrightson, Frank Brunner art

Phase v1 #1, 1971 - An independent one-shot, Phase gathered the work of some of the best artists of the bronze age. Frank Brunner illustrates the lead tale, a sword and sorcery epic that hints at the young artist's future potential. This story was later reprinted in Monsters Unleashed #2. Jeff Jones uses his stark, high contrast approach to capture the quiet void of space in "Home" (reprinted in Ravens and Rainbows #1). Perhaps most memorable is Neal Adams' "A View from Without", an alien's insights into the horrors of the Vietnam War. The artist's mix of photographs and drawings adds a greater sense of realism each page. Adams' story was reprinted in Unknown Worlds of Science Fiction #1. Lastly, Bernie Wrightson has an impeccably drawn sci-fi image following the contents page. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow and Rich Buckler. Wrap-around cover by Ken Barr.
