Absolutely Final Starlin*: Mar-Vell no.33

(* well, for this month, anyway. )Once again–this is from the very beginnings of this project, before I knew I was doing anything, and I drew this quickly one morning at work before the day began-so it’s really loose. It was fun to do. Coloring came later–and this was the first page I colored, so I was merely trying to replicate at this point. Rather than use black for the night sky, I layered ultramarine over a red-making for a richer night sky and saving my black markers! Drawing Thanos in action was the attraction–for my money, (all 25 cents of it in 1973) this is one of Starlin’s best depictions of him.  What a great image! What a malevolent creature!
