Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 24

Move along. Nothing to see here. In fact, this is the most generic splash page we've had yet. The title takes up the top quarter of the page and its coloring distracts from the actual scene below rather than highlighting it.

In that scene we get a totally defeated hero, a rather distracted looking Warlord Krang doing his soggy Ming the Merciless impression and a hulking Orka.

John Buscema continues his anatomically impressive art, here with Jim Mooney as inker. If only the layouts had been more interesting.

I might give this one some kudos for the dramatic figure of Namor, who does seem (for the moment here anyway) quite defeated. Looming over him Orka is very threatening, his face obscured, appearing from this angle to be a maw of some sort.

Krang does look kind of bored though.

Continue to enjoy this series.
