57 YEARS AGO TODAY

1959 was a good time to be a Kirby fan. Since the beginning of the year 33 Kirby-covered comics were published.
This latest one, like all but 15 of those comics, also had Kirby interior art.

  1. I don't think this is Kirby. I think this is Joe Simon swiping Kirby. See the cover to Captain America #7. It's not like Kirby to swipe from himself. I'm betting if I looked long enough, I could find the source of the leprechaun face as well.

    1. Mark, I agree, and that tiny figure of the Fly above the logo is a swipe of the cover of Fighting American #2. As for the leprechaun, I know there was a story in Black Magic about a scary leprechaun, but I don't have it at hand to check.
