37 YEARS AGO TODAY

 An example of why Seventies comic fans were less impressed with Lee/Kirby than Sixties comic fans.

The reprinting of Captain America's origin from CAPTAIN AMERICA #109 in MARVEL SUPER ACTION #11 didn't include the action-packed second page.

74 YEARS AGO TODAY


MARVEL MYSTERY COMICS #24 didn't have a Kirby cover but it DID have 7 pages of Kirby/Simon art making Kirby's third year drawing funny books his most successful so far.  He had 14 covers published and 616 interior pages! If THAT wasn't enough to satisfy that era's Kirby fans he also had 19 pages of story illustrations in three different Goodman pulps!!!
