Epic Illustrated #19 - Jim Steranko cover

Jim Steranko
Epic Illustrated v1 #19, 1983 - Posed against a blood red sky, Jim Steranko's barbarian clutches his broadsword, braced for battle. The detail and modeling of the figures are carefully crafted. The painting elicits excitement, aided by the fiery color palette. Steranko did little work for comics during this time period, making this a rarity. Other artists in this issue include Kent Williams, Carl Potts and Terry Austin. This is number 1 of 1 Epic Illustrated issues with Steranko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Steranko or Epic Illustrated issues. See also this blog's Steranko checklist or Top 10 Steranko comics.
