Supernatural Thrillers v1 #1 featuring It, 1972 - This premiere issue features an adaptation based on Theodore Sturgeon's It!. The timing coincides with the "swamp monster" trend prevalent during the 1970s. Jim Steranko does a worthy cover rendition, despite being confined to a smaller area than usual. Note the artist's use of intricate textures on the background tree, rocks, clouds and muck monster itself. Steranko's cover was later re-painted by another artist for the cover of Masters of Terror #1. Other artists in this issue include Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia. This is number 1 of 2 Supernatural Thrillers issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
