SPECTACULAR SPLASH PAGES #13...


Image copyright MARVEL COMICS

Why is this a spectacular splash page?  Because it's by
JIM STARLIN, it features WARLOCK (formerly known
as HIM), and, er - because it's got a hot babe with a body
to die for.  What?  Me, sexist?  Perish forbid.

The Starlin Warlock storylines in "Strange Tales" an in his own title was one of my favourite comics of the 70s, I loved all that cosmic Starlin stuff back then. I re-read some of my old issues a few years ago and whislt it seemed a bit less "magical" the art was still amazing. A great spalsh page and my favourite so far.

He's given up drawing now, alas. I hear he's writing something that Alan Davis is drawing, but I forget what.

I picked up the first issue of that book "The Infinity Entity" some nice Alan Davis art but it jsut seemed like something I had read by Starlin (many times) before. That's a shame he has given up drawing he was a great artist. I seem to remember the first "Master of Kung Fu" strip I read (possibly the first MoKF strip?) was by Starlin (or his art at least) it was a nice change of pace from his usual high octane / navel gazing space stories.

Yes, I've got that first Master of Kung Fu comic (Special Marvel Edition #15) and it was indeed drawn by by Jim Starlin, PM, and written by Steve Englehart. Nice little comic. I remember first reading the story in Avengers weekly #28, printed in black, white & grey. (Letratone.)

Apparently space suits in the future are shrink wrapped directly to the body. :)

I nearly mentioned that aspect myself, JA, but I couldn't think of how to say it in a way that matches your spot-on description.
