Kirby Cover Action!

At Them Darned Superpeople, friend of the Gutter Colin Smith writes about some Jack Kirby covers–Challengers of the Unknown! Jimmy Olsen! Lois Lane! “June/July 1959’s Challengers Of The Unknown #8 contained the very last new Jack Kirby work to appear in a DC Comic until 1970. It’s hard not to regard its cover as a prime example of the vitiating effect of DC’s constant attempts to rein in Kirby’s dynamic style. It is, all at the same time, both obviously Kirbyesque and yet, in certain key aspects, very much not.”
