Marvel Premiere #19 - non-attributed Neal Adams art, Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Marvel Premiere v1 #19 featuring Iron Fist, 1974 - Making her first appearance, Colleen Wing brings Iron Fist to her father, a professor whose been targeted by the cult of Kara-Kai. Neal Adams lends a hand penciling two story pages and perhaps some panels and figures. For such as small contribution, the artist adds a marked improvement to the story. Jim Starlin's cover is a crowded layout with little hierarchy and an almost unrecognizable style. Note that comic book guides neglected to attribute both Adams and Starlin in this issue. Other artists in this bronze age comic include Larry Hama. This is 4 of 4 Marvel Premiere issues by Adams and 2 of 2 Marvel Premiere issues by Starlin

  1. Marvel Comics Database credits Jim Starlin and Al Milgrom with the cover. I would never have guessed it.
