Here's another winner from Marie Severin. "Gaudioso" is still listed as inker but this doesn't look like his style to me. In fact, that red thingie at lower right reminds me much of former inker Dan Adkins' style.
This is a striking use of the splash page with creative title placement. The solid blue of the machinery in the background throws the overall effect of the image but not much. The alien looks genuinely alien and all the little touches add a great deal. Roy's storylines were still going great guns with Triton once again guest-starring in this issue. Good stuff with more to come...for a while.
