Marvel Preview #11 / Star-Lord - John Byrne, Jim Starlin art

Marvel Preview v1 #11 presents Star-Lord, 1977 - Jim Starlin's portrait of the galactic hero (inside front cover) has a triumphant and iconic quality to it. John Byrne takes this further in his main feature story. Thirty plus pages of exceptional drawings are accompanied by varying page layouts and precise pacing. Byrne's opening splash is both dramatic and beautiful in its symmetry. His following two-page spread gives a wide panoramic view of a remote alien landscape. The entire story is a stunning showcase of the artist's talent, further enhanced by the inks of Terry Austin. This story was first reprinted in color in Star Lord special edition #1. Other artists in this Marvel bronze age science fiction comic include Ken Barr (his cover is loosely based on a Byrne interior panel). This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Preview issues with Byrne art and/or covers. and number 2 of 4 Marvel Preview issues with Starlin art and/or covers.

Possibly the finest Marvel comic ever. Definitely the best Marvel b&w effort.

Came "this close" to being the subject of my 1000th post.
