Black Magic #8[v2n2] [1951] – Cover


Wow, I’m just in awe of how gorgeous this cover looks. The shape and texture of the demon, the smoke, the girl in the background. Even more scary is how work like this was routine for Simon&Kirby in that era.


I sometimes wonder what Kirby’s 1960s and 1970s work would look like with this kind of inking sensibility. Different, certainly.
