Kirby Kovers!


kirbycovers
We're wrapping up this week's posts with a dose of Kirby Kovers!

60440
Our first item is Two-Gun Kid #59! As you can see, Two-Gun didn't have his distinctive outfit quite yet here.
10639
Here's Mister Miracle #5, showing that once again, nobody did tech quite like Kirby did!

8702
Next, it's House of Mystery #65, with Kirby's take on Easter Island!

47384
Silver Star #3, one of Kirby's books for Pacific Comics. I preferred Captain Victory, myself, but bought this one as well as Destroyer Duck.

29365
Tales of Suspense #10... say, aren't those two kids wearing awfully inappropriate attire for being in a frozen wasteland?

207214
Young Romance #91... who says Kirby couldn't draw attractive women?

devil1
Devil Dinosaur #1, probably one of Kirby's most off-beat titles!

10000
Kaman #33... say, I wonder if Super-Team Family... The Lost Issues ever did a Devil Dinosaur/Kamandi cover yet?

Fantastic Four #39, a great cover for an epic issue!

23849
Beware the floating head of Loki on Journey into Mystery #91!

adventure086
Sandman and Sandy battle the Axis in the air on the cover of Adventure Comics #86!

29423
Tales of Suspense #68, from the time when the book told WWII-era Cap stories!

31439
X-Men #11, as the world's strangest teenagers meet The Stranger on casual Friday!

31445
X-Men #17's cover really benefits from the monochromatic coloring, doesn't it?

11101
New Gods #11... man, I hope that the Fourth World books never get made into live-action movies, because they could never live up to Kirby's visuals!

14959
Jimmy Olsen #144, looks like there's pretty much nothing left of Kirby's original art for Superman on this cover!

190078
Justice Traps the Guilty #10 (I think, it's hard to read this image).

29420
Tales of Suspense #65, with another WWII-era Cap tale, from the time Nazi villains could wear swastikas, before everything became Hydra this, Hydra that!

1482_4_0079.jpg
Fantastic Four #79, with a great Thing cover!

13550
Star-Spangled Comics #34!

29453
Tales of Suspense #98, with the first battle of Captain America Vs. the Black Panther! Probably way more epic than their clash in Captain America: Civil War, eh?

9991
Kamandi #24!

1482_4_0069.jpg
Nobody did epic rooftop battles like Kirby did, such as on Fantastic Four #69's cover!

29470
Tales to Astonish #4... I never realized there was an exclamation point in the title of the earliest issues!

227657
In Love #5... I wonder if the Nurse really loves the Fireman? That's usually the case.

29688
Thor #144!

240752
First Love #70, with a rare two men after the same girl cover (as opposed to two girls after the same guy).

29532
Tales To Astonish #66, showing just why Giant-Man couldn't hold on to his solo half of the book... I mean, his villains were all pretty lame, with few exceptions!

156951
Young Love #73 goes back to the usual theme of these things...

22030
Fantastic Four #164, a classic Kirby pose I've tried to recreate multiple times!

boysranch3
Finally, this extra-large edition of Kirby Kovers ends with Boys Ranch #3!
