The Avengers — The Invasion Of The Lava Men

4T0mV4pD_2705140846171This is a pen and ink of the cover for Avengers Clas­sic #5 by Art Adams. Which was itself a reprint of the orig­i­nal Avengers Vol 1 #5 which featured the orig­i­nal Avengers lineup going up against Molto, Supreme Warrior of the Lava Men. Not perhaps one of their stronger outings.

It’s prob­a­bly unfair to directly compare the two given the differ­ence in publish­ing prac­tices and art styles in the inter­ven­ing forty years, but I know which I prefer.
