Bronze Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Saturdays # 56


The bad news--Bill Everett is missing. The good news--Dan Adkins who had drawn Namor in some of his TALES TO ASTONISH stories a few years earlier fills in with this absolutely marvelous splash. The design, the coloring, the lettering and the art itself. After the frenetic Everett work of recent issues, the innate calm here is almost palpable. One of my favorites of the whole run.

Beautiful!

Dan Adkins deserves more credit. His Subby and Doc Strange are top notch, and I loved his inking on John Buscema's Silver Surfer.

It's a shame his original space hero Starhawk never got off the launching pad.
