Spidey Super Stories #19 [1976] – Cover


One of the more oddball series to see a Kirby cover in the 1970s is this comic tied in to Spider-Man’s role on the ELECTRIC COMPANY tv show. Not a lot of Kirby left after the Romita inks on the Spider-Man figure, but that’s a great looking Doctor Doom (I’m not completely sold on the Romita credit for the Doom figure, which is much more faithful to Kirby’s linework than most of his inking over Kirby). The Surfer is pretty good, too, but more of an afterthought in this layout.


Not sure how the story is, but based on these panels with Doom and the Surfer from a later issue probably not good, but certainly bizarre.
