The very definition of cool, far-out, and awesome.
I was actually undecided whether to post this or the Fury / Hound Of The Baskervilles one last week on Steranko's birthday, then my net / phone / service provider troubles hit. Glad someone saw fit to post it, son. Ker-Lass-Ic!
Beautiful! A solid gold classic. Love the Eisner-esque look of that last panel and that lovely scene between Fury and Val on page 2.Thanks for posting, Joe.
Imagine reading this as a six year old. Seriously! I'd only been reading comics for less than a year, and suddenly this showed up. I thought all comic books would be like that from then on. Well, it definitely influenced my taste in comics, not to mention mind-altering substances...
Steranko's sense of design is awesome.And this site is too. Thank you for your great efforts Mr Bloke.
I saw all of the Marvel work by Steranko when it was first published. Now that I have studied John K's Blog, I realize that Steranko used hierarchical composition in his work, especially covers and splashes. I actually met Steranko in 1972 and he was quite friendly. I'm glad for the works that he did. He must have quit doing the comics at Marvel on his own terms. The man never published anything but top notch stuff. I also love his two volume history of comics. Thanks for the great website.
