Photograph of an unpublished Big Barda and the Female Furies splash. I would have loved to have seen Jack tackle that title as a long-running book.
Sky Masters: 5/1/59. Classic Kirby/Wood, especially panel 2 featuring an excellent example of Kirby/Wood Tech. Looks like the “clank” sound effect in panel 3 is a paste-on. This small scan that I probably downloaded off of eBay years ago doesn’t do the original art justice.

“Are there enough Sky Masters strips to warrant a reprint volume? That’s one I’d love to see more of. Kirby and Wood. Wow!”
Greg Theakston’s Pure Imagination put together a very nice collection of Skymasters comics several years ago. You might be able to pick up a copy one day on eBay if someone offers to sell a copy. Here is the cover:
Another sweet Sky Masters strip from 1959. Wally Wood could make any artist’s women look beautiful with his brilliant inks.
Thor # 141 art. Notice extensive Kirby liner notes at the top. Kirby/Colletta art.
Scan of the X-Men Marvel Girl Pin-up original art. Kirby/Stone
“Last Days of Pompeii” art. Page 23. Kirby/Ayers. Signed by Dick in the bottom right corner. From Classics Illustrated # 35 (1961). Notice how Jack uses long vertical panels to highlight the columns in panels 1 and 4.
Scan of FF # 62 original art. Signed by Jack in the last panel. Kirby/Sinnott.
Journey into Mystery # 115, page 20. Kirby/Giacoia.
Journey into Mystery # 115, page 8. Kirby/Giacoia. One of the rare times Giacoia inked Jack’s Thor.
