JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY THOR COVER - HOW I MIGHT HAVE DONE IT...


Images copyright MARVEL COMICS

I've already added this image to the 'spot the difference'
post on JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #83, but I felt it de-
served a post of its own.  As you know, several STONE MEN
were removed from the cover before publication to give greater
prominence to THOR, but I felt that a few of them could have
been left in.  Consequently, I did a little work on a copy of the
original production stat to show how I might've done things
had I been calling the shots.  (Hey, you gotta think big!)

Below is the original for comparison.

That is actually A-OK!
Pat yourself on the back!
( Now, what about that Ka-Zar/X-Men? )....

Thats exactly the way to do it, Kid.
I am enjoying this series of articles.

It's a bit odd Thor swinging at enemies who all seem to be behind him. Shouldn't there have been a Stone Man or two rising up from the bottom of the cover?

Well, the cover's laid out for dramatic effect, JSW. I think it's safe to assume (if you want to) that there were a few Stone Men in front of Thor, but they've already been knocked out of shot (otherwise we wouldn't see Thor for them). Gotta remember too that covers are usually symbolic. Good thinking 'though.
