After a two week drought 4 proto-Marvels shipped the last week of February 1961. Half of them had Kirby/Ayers covers, the other half were romance titles with Vince Colletta covers. Both of the Kirby-covered comics had some Kirby interior art

 JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #68 had the most interior Kirby art with another variation on the 13 page Giant monster story. (GUNSMOKE WESTERN #64 had the least with only 5 Kirby pages)
