Captain America Annual # 3

Three page sequence from Captain America Annual # 3 (1976) featuring a tremendous amount of Kirby’s famous “crackle,” then a truly bizarre splash page featuring a giant mouth in the foreground, visually about to devour Captain America. Inks on this book look to be a mish-mash of Giacoia and Verpoorten. Jack must have been really cranking out artwork in the 1970s with regular books, annuals, covers, and the Treasury Editions — Marvel editors and inkers must have been scrambling to try and keep up with Jack’s prodigious output while still maintaining a high quality level.
