how could I have forgotten this one, the comic book issue I have owned the longest:

ha, i like the interthread communication there

the "now you're going to pay!" could be an entirely new thread

this is not really the same thing, but I like it when 60s marvel books have a final panel in which the hero ruminates on his own failings, and sad Iron Man is just killing me

Now I'm imagining 98% of these covers with Scalia and/or John Roberts photoshopped in.

Young Giffen doing a pretty good Neal Adams impression there.

chap, Wednesday, 4 October 2017 10:52 (two years ago) link

Can't see a great deal of Adams there myself, and at this stage of his career Giffen was generally more of a Kirby Kopyist (though it's true that throughout the 70s Marvel encouraged their artists to 'emulate' Kirby, while DC encouraged their artists to 'emulate' Adams.)

Gunpowder Julius (Ward Fowler), Wednesday, 4 October 2017 11:06 (two years ago) link

i can see adams in it, but looks a bit more like joe kubert to me

more bemused than human (bizarro gazzara), Wednesday, 4 October 2017 11:11 (two years ago) link

Well the inker, John Celardo, was an old newspaper strip hand who took over the Green Beret comic strip from... Joe Kubert, so I think that might account for the similarity, more than Giffen's pencils.

wow, that Hawk & Dove cover is great. went to GCD to see who inked it, and they have it as Ditko, which surely can't be right?

(I agree with their assessment of Gaspar for letters, and the logo looks like him too - wonder if the overall design came from Ditko, Gaspar, or someone inhouse)

kelp, clam and carrion (sic), Friday, 29 June 2018 21:07 (one year ago) link

That looks like a Ditko to me.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 29 June 2018 21:09 (one year ago) link

did Ditko not ink his own stuff?

Οὖτις, Friday, 29 June 2018 21:09 (one year ago) link

he usually inked his interiors, but the drapery and black-spotting on that cover look more fluid and shadowy than he tended to do, and the varying lineweight on Dove and the top heads is a heavier brush than I think of him doing.

I'm no expert though, and have only seen his stuff in non-reprint form from the 1980s on.

kelp, clam and carrion (sic), Friday, 29 June 2018 21:27 (one year ago) link

hmm, just saw it full-size at Spurge's, and the inking on the "Don" legs is totally Ditko's shading style

kelp, clam and carrion (sic), Friday, 29 June 2018 21:33 (one year ago) link

I had no idea that Hawk & Dove went back that far!

They were in Showcase first.
