Sign Of Gemini!


I touched on this subject before in this post. But I found this wonderful two-page spread from Charlton Bullseye #2 at this location. Captain Atom is beautifully rendered here by the "Gemini" team, specially Jim Starlin and Al Milgrom. The signature is a pun on "Jim-and-I" as signed by Milgrom.


The "Gemini" team also rendered this wonderful reprise of their own dramatic layout for Captain Marvel #29 for a reprint of Captain Marvel's adventures.


And here's an overseas reprint of the cover I found just this morning at GCD.

  1. Never noticed til I see it here but looks like a Romita head pasted on the original. Happened a lot in those days.

  2. It is a John Romita head. Check out that link to my earlier post "Silent But Sparkly" to see the original Starlin-Milgrom head. It's a bit intense, so I can see why editorial wanted a more friendly Romita design on the cover.
