In honor of Jack “King” Kirby’s birthday I have decided to feature 10 of my favorite covers (although I cheated with Young Romance #17 and used a splash). Well my favorite covers today; if I were to make a list tomorrow it probably would include a different set except perhaps for Treasure #10 which always seems to be one of my favorites. Of course Jack would go on to do many great covers after the Simon and Kirby collaboration ended but I am sure others will provide examples of those (hey after all this is the Simon and Kirby Blog).
Captain America #7 (October 1941)
Green Hornet #9 (October 1942)
Boy Commandos #2 (Spring 1943)
Adventure #84 (March 1943)
Treasure #10 (December 1946)
Headline #30 (June 1948)
Young Romance #17 (January 1950)
Black Magic #8 (December 1951)
Fighting American #4 (October 1954)
Foxhole #3 (February 1955)
So Happy Birthday Jack!
