51 YEARS AGO TODAY

 Kirby gets Stoned!



All nine of the Kirby covers that shipped September 1964 were inked by Chic Stone.

  1. I remember these so clearly. Imagine getting a new Kirby comic every month, sigh those were the days!

  2. To my delight, Marvel was running in house ads that showcased 4 titles on each page, so if you had missed them on the spinner rack, you now had an idea of what you were looking for at garage sales, barber shops, and used bookstores! How helpful... and what magic to see a Kirby cover leaping off the page at you! Chic Stone really helped cement that Marvel Age of Comics had arrived!

  3. The barber shop. My grandfather used to take me with him when he went. That was how I was introduced to comics before I knew how to read!
