DESCRIPTION
ow/white pgs
Kirby cvr/art; 1st app. The Vanisher
Still trying to find the feel and style of the series, in this issue, Lee and Kirby introduce a traditional villain, The Vanisher, meant to plague our teenaged heroes by teleporting and transporting himself with his mutant powers, eventually developing a scheme whereby he holds national secrets hostage, demanding millions of dollars from the US government in an exciting standoff on the lawn of the White House. The use of the mutant hero/villain motif eventually became the backbone of much of the Marvel line, but this charming and telling early issue shows the foundations still being laid for hero greatness to come.


Artist 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.
