Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 35
Here we have another nicely designed splash beautifully showcasing the proto-Defenders from the previous issue. Sal and Jim do near-perfect depictions of the early seventies versions of The Hulk, The Silver Surfer and particularly our hero, The Sub-Mariner, all neatly circled by...well...whatever that white thing is with the credits written on it.
It's a shame it has to be all based over what has to be one of the worst depictions of outer space ever seen in a comic book. I mean, seriously. It...it's just a series of brightly colored dots on a black background. And...and a big orangey...thing. Okay, so what have we learned here? Sal Buscema and Jim Mooney are NOT Jim Starlin. Keep in mind that even Jim Starlin wasn't Jim Starlin yet.
