Marvel Triple Action #7 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin
Marvel Triple Action v1 #7, 1972 - One of many bronze age reprint titles, Marvel began with Fantastic Four and Avengers stories from the early 1960s. While the majority of covers were also reprints, a new cover would appear on occasion, including this one by Jim Starlin. His layout is fairly congested, but this is largely offset by the clear placement and hierarchy of figures. The circular device behind Captain America also establishes a clear focal point. This is number 1 of 1 Marvel Triple Action issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Starlin or Marvel Triple Action issues.

  1. i'm sure that starlin could knock this sort of stuff out in his sleep back then, and the marvel bullpen used the excited newcomer to good advantage with a number of covers back then. and he got paid.

    can't wait to see you decipher the credits on the cover to Daredevil #107 someday

  2. Daredevil #107 has already been posted, but I'll expand upon it at a later date. Not sure about the inker, Joe Sinnott maybe? The Black Widow looks reworked by someone else.

  4. Al Milgrom. The faces of Natasha and Mar-vel may have been reworked by Romita.

  5. I agree with Danman. Romita touch ups mostly on Natasha. BTW, Jim Starlin cut his eyeteeth on a slew of British reprint covers in the early 1970s, many inked by Joe Sinnott.
