Fantastic Four # 11 Art

Flipping through Fantastic Four # 11 (Feb 1963), there is a lot of great Kirby/Ayers art in this story. Here are a few more funny samples featuring the Impossible Man from the book. Pages 5, 7, and 10.

The Swine

Here are some interior pages from Captain America # 206 (Feb 1977). I still remember being struck by this sequence after reading this as a 13-year-old kid. Not your typical 70s comic book fare. The Swine, who looks a lot like John Lennon, kills a victim by forcing him to over-eat. Cruel and gruesome. Pages 5, 9, and 10 from the story.

Here is the published Captain America # 206 cover.

This is one of the earliest comic books I ever remember getting off the 7-11 spinner racks.

Captain America # 206 cover. Jack’s penciled-text at the bottom of the page says, “A soul-searing thriller!” and “Prison of death! — Domain of — The Swine!”

Captain Victory # 12, Page 14

Captain Victory # 12 (Oct 1983), page 14. On the left is an acetate overlay with the original painted colors. Kirby/Thibodeaux art.

Captain America # 102, Page 11

Captain America # 102 (Jun 1968), page 11 scan. Kirby/Shores. You can see plenty of partial Kirby margin notes which were cut off in production. I can make out the text “… a weird diver” over panel 2. Signed by Jack in panel 3.

I can’t even guess what that substance is on the bottom left-hand corner of this scan.
