Superboy #250 - Jim Starlin art

Superboy (and the Legion of Super-Heroes) v1 #250, 1979 - This landmark 250th issue picks up the storyline first started in Superboy #239. When a destructive creature called Omega nears Earth, not even the combined might of Superboy and Mon-El can stop him. Jim Starlin (under the name of Steve Apollo) provides tight layouts. Dave Hunt's inks have a softening effect on the drawings, but don't impede the sequencing. Overall the work could have benefited from Starlin's greater involvement. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton and Dick Giordano. This is number 3 of 4 Superboy issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Superboy issues.
