Original Art Stories: Sal Velluto & Bob Almond's Thirst
Another set of artists they hired, much to my delight, was none other than Sal Velluto and Bob Almond. Both artists established their rep as one of the premier artistic teams of all time, in my own opinion, with their stellar work on Marvel's Black Panther. Bob might not fully agree with me there, but history will bear me out. It made sense that the Salvo's would have hired Sal and Bob, but what should have been a great issue never happened - Sal and Bob completed the art, along with a cover, but the Salvo's never published it. Their loss really, so for a Sunday delight, here's the complete story, Thirst, as penciled by Sal Velluto and inked by Bob Almond. Don't worry if it makes no sense - even with dialogue most of the First Salvo material didn't read that well. What you really wanted was some beautiful art, and that's what you got!
