Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash page Sundays # 13
Being just a couple of days past the luckiest Friday the 13th I've had in ages, here's the appropriate SUB-MARINER # 13 splash from 1969. Some Marvel artists did that innovative splash thing better than others. Here we have Marie Severin again, giving it a go with help from Joltin' Joe Sinnott, certainly near the top of anyone's list of great comic book inkers. The only real problem I see here is Namor's head. Is it me or does it seem to have somehow migrated down to his upper chest, losing its neck entirely in the process. Was Rob Liefeld even born by this point? Oh, and the title. lettered so classically here? Seriously..."Death Thou Shalt Die!" Okay, even Roy's flowery title skills have an off-day.
