Time for another installment of Kirby Kovers!
2001n09
Our first item is 2001: A Space Odyssey #9, introducing Mister Machine, who would shortly be renamed Machine Man, and go on to live beyond this comic title and join the Marvel Universe! I wonder what the current origin for him is supposed to be?

Next, we have In Love, from September of one year or another. I regret I didn't give this file a proper name before. Obviously, a Simon and Kirby collaboration.

Here's Sgt. Fury #25, a cover I featured not too long ago as part of "Covers Redux"!

Next, we have Captain Victory #7, which was my favorite of Kirby's latter-day titles.

29476
Tales to Atonish #10, with a giant crab monster years before Godzilla faced off against the Sea Monster!

25393
Marvel Premiere #26, with Hercules' first solo story!

190065
Justice Traps the Guilty #5!

14957
Jimmy Olsen #142!

25969
Marvel Two-In-One #27! I always wished that when Kirby came back to Marvel in the 70s, he'd been tapped to write and draw the FF, because I think that the ideas he wanted to explore would've fit that title better than what he did in Captain America.

Journey into Mystery #102!

74727
Kirby's return to DC paved the way for him to do this cover for Super DC Giant #S-25!

126775
And we'll wrap up this installment with My Own Romance #71!
