42 YEARS AGO TODAY

1976 was the last best year to be a collector of Kirby-covered comics. Two more hit the shops bringing his year-to-date total to 87.

That was more new Kirby covers than would be released in the next 5 years combined!!!

67 YEARS AGO TODAY

Kirby's 14th cover for 1951 was on sale. By this point in 1951 Gil Kane had 15 covers published and future Kirby inker Chris Rule had 17 covers published.
So far Kirby had done all 9 covers for this title. Only 2 of those issues (including this one) did not have any interior art by him.
