Mighty THOR! Super 1978 Original Cover Art! Ulik Attacks! Marvel Comics!

Another fantastic cover from the pencil of dandy Dave Cockrum! Here is the 1978 cover art for THOR #279, featuring a pulse-pounding scene of drama, action, and danger!  Dave's great talent in the area of character design was well-known, but he also excelled in composing facinating scenes, depicting female characters, and creating a real sense of movement! And, let's not overlook the slick and sterling inks by "jolting'" Joe Sinnott! Has Thor ever looked better? Another Marvel triumph! Click to enlarge!

Notice how Cockrum smartly used the figure of Jane Foster to bisect the composition,
and emphasize the two sides representing conflicting good and evil!
