Jack Kirby pencils/Wally Wood inks; page 16; 1975; image size 10" x 15"Great page from Kirby and Joe Simon's 1970's relaunch of their own Golden Age Sandman. Making this page even more special is that it's inked by the legendary Wally Wood, a reunion of sorts since their work together in the 50's on Challengers of the Unknown and the Sky Masters comic strip. Sandman in action throughout, battling Doctor Spider alongside Brute, Glob and Jed. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition.
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.
