FOOM No. 9 Cover by Jim Starlin

September 19, 2020|In General

Here’s another cover to FOOM, Marvel’s 1970s fan magazine. Jim Starlin was making waves at Marvel as a writer and artist with a strong interest and ability in science fiction and all matters cosmic. He began with Captain Marvel, injecting new life into that character, and by the time of this issue in 1975, he had revived and was revolutionising Adam Warlock.

The fucker killed Mar-Vell off in The Death of Captain Marvel graphic novel a few years later, but he’s still strongly associated with Adam Warlock through a number of series and the Infinity Gauntlet saga.

Here’s some new colour to a cover that was originally printed in only red and blue.
