A half century of Covers


STRANGE TALES #134, 1965. Frank Giacoia inks again for the final Human Torch solo story. Knights, archers, horses, castles and super-heroes. Just some of the things Kirby drew so well.

GREEN HORNET #7, 1942. An early Harvey cover, signed Jon Henri. There seem to be other hands in here, probably Joe Simon, but there’s a lot of Kirby in that killer clown. I like some of those other features, Blonde Bomber the Newsreel Ace, Mighty Midgets.

ACTION COMICS #638, 1989. A very nice image of Etrigan, very sharply inked by Terry Austin, one of a few chances he had to ink Kirby. This is also Kirby’s last published work for DC.
