|Astonishing Tales #10|
Astonishing Tales v1 #10 featuring Ka-Zar, 1972 – Barry Smith‘s only full length Ka-Zar tale, his artwork mostly fails to meet expectations. The layouts are poorly planned and executed. The drawings are crude and hurried, made worse by Sal Buscema’s passive inking. There are faint semblances of Smith’s talent (see interior page below), but overall the story art is among his weakest efforts. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane and Dan Adkins (cover). See an original page from this issue. This is number 5 of 5 Astonishing Tales issues with Smith art and/or covers.
