Kirby cvr/art; Sub-Mariner cover/story (7/64)
Along with Batman, Sub-Mariner was definitely one of the very first comic characters who could be referred to as an antihero. During the Golden Age, Subbie would wreak havoc as often as he would save the day, battling the Human Torch and Nazis with the same amount of intensity, as Namor’s true allegiance was to the undersea kingdom of Atlantis, and not with the land dwellers he despised so fervently. When the aquatic Avenger returned in the Silver Age, his loyalties were still largely ambiguous, Stan Lee plugging him into the Fantastic Four, likely to hedge his bets on his new creations by linking them to Timely’s past successes, and again using him here to increase interest in the X-Men. By teaming Sub-Mariner up with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Marvel could at once help the continuing resuscitation of one of their beloved classic characters while also building up the brand of their newest inventions. It was a win-win situation, and, as we now know, the move paid off in spades.



Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

Inker at Marvel best known for his work on Jack Kirby's pencils for the Fantastic Four, also worked for Fawcett and Lev Gleason in the Golden Age
