The Avengers #23 [1965] – Cover


Doesn’t Kang look great on this cover, inked by John Romita in his first job on his return to Marvel? It looks even better in the original version (which you can see here as part of an interview in ALTER EGO, or in the various reprints), before Kang’s outstretched hand was moved for some inexplicable reason.


I always love these symbolic giant menace covers by Kirby. Not just the huge villain but the reactions of the heroes in the foreground.

    Great C.A. pose, as only the King could imagine.
    (J. Buscema was pretty close though.)

    Happy New Year, bob – love the blog!
