If you recall seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show but not this Kirby comic (with cameos by the Fantastic Four AND the X-Men) being on sale maybe you are remembering the rerun broadcast seven months later.
It wasn't 100% Kirby. There was also Ditko Doctor Strange filler (but at least Marvel warned you on the cover!)

56 YEARS AGO TODAY proto-Marvel had already shipped half of their comics for February: KID COLT OUTLAW #98, STRANGE TALES #84, TALES OF SUSPENSE #17 and TALES TO ASTONISH #19.
100% of those comics had Kirby/Ayers covers and 75% of them had 13 pages of interior Kirby art.
The origin of proto-Magneto (from STRANGE TALES #84) was about a year ahead of its time.

If you were 1 of the 73 million Americans who watched the Beatles perform 5 songs on the Ed Sullivan Show or even if you were 1 of the more than 100 million that didn't, you might remember seeing this Jack Kirby and Bill Everett cover on your local spinner rack.

You might have bought this Kirby-covered comic while waiting for the Beatles to make their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance.
Only the cover was by Kirby.
If you were more interested in the latest episodes of GUNSMOKE, WAGON TRAIN, RAWHIDE, THE VIRGINIAN and BONANZA than the Beatles' Sunday Sullivan Show appearances maybe you were convinced by this Kirby cover to buy...
You guessed it. No Kirby interior artwork.
