steranko called his style “zap art”, and it’s a perfect term: it recalls pop art, while the “zap” carries the “low art” connotations of comics—which is just about what steranko did. he put the silver age aesthetic through funhouse mirrors of cinema, pop art and psychedelia; indelibly kirby-influenced but infused with a sharp graphic sensibility. his panel design was particularly brilliant. as above, they often eschewed conventional sequential technique for visual dynamism—to the point where, at his peak, each page can practically stand as a work unto itself.
