House of Mystery #282 - Jim Starlin art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
House of Mystery v1 #282, 1978 - Joe Kubert's disturbing cover of a modern day Jack the Ripper has only a faint resemblance to the story inside. The "bonus"comic touted at the top is actually a Superman story promoting Radio Shack. Jim Starlin's art is incredibly lackluster, perhaps due to the commercial content. Dick Giordano's inks further sanitize the pages, making the pencils mostly unrecognizable. This insert appeared in several late-1970s DC comics, as well as being a stand-alone giveaway at Radio Shack stores. This is number 3 of 3 House of Mystery issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin, Kubert or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics or Kubert checklist.
