Steranko here tackles Marvel's First Family, in his best Pop Art style ( if somewhat dated in the '70s ) with some lovely colour work and eye-catching design. I'd personally like to see The Thing in a bit more detail, something Mr. S managed on the cover of FF no. 130 - yep, another future post.....

Steranko Saturdays: Marvel Comics Index to the FF
Today's illustration is the cover to issue 4 of George Olshevsky's Marvel Comics Index. This was an ambitious series that aimed to catalogue all the Marvel superhero stories from FF no. 1 up to the time of publication ( 1976 / 7 ) - a major reference tool in those pre-internet days. So, effectively a lower-budget precursor to the Gerber Photo-Journals of the early '90s. ( Steranko also did the cover of the Captain America issue, to be posted at a later date. )
