In 1972 and 1973 Jim Steranko worked as a cover artist for Marvel Comics. Jim created some of his finest covers during this period, but the way they were published was a travesty. One of the most obvious was the cover of Thongor from Creatures on the Loose #22. Many of Steranko's covers were bastardized from what he submitted, but few were treated as badly as this one. The first image was the Steranko art submitted (from Comixscene #1), the second image is the comic book as published.
