THOR # 180! Rare Neal Adams 1970 Marvel Comics Cover Art! Bronze Age Goodness!

Didja know the great and powerful Neal Adams once drew for Marvel Comics? You heard right! In the late 60s/early 70s, Neal drew a slate of Marvel titles, including (the then-flagging) X-MEN, INHUMANS, AVENGERS, and, yes, two incredible issues of THE MIGHTY THOR! Neal was heavily inked on these issues by the stellar "Joltin'" Joe Sinnott, making his art a bit more Kirby-like than a fan mighta expected (as evidenced on this cover), but it was still a humbling and powerful sight to behold! Too bad Neal couldn't be swayed to try his hand on such titles as FANTASTIC FOUR, CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN, or (dare I even say it?) SPIDER-MAN! Click below to enlarge Neal's (with inks by Sinnott) original cover art to THOR #180!
