DESCRIPTION
Jack Kirby pencils/Vince Colletta inks; page 12; 1967; image size 12.5" x 18.5"

Kang's creature feature of the month, the Growing Man, squares off with the Mighty Thor in this thrilling issue. This interior half-splash has bombastic panel-to-panel combat scenes, complete with onomatopoeia action as Thor bludgeons Growing Man with his trusty Mjolnir. Kirby's at his finest illustrating superhero skirmishes and a piece like this improves with every viewing! The King churned out pages at an astonishing rate, and each unique piece is as impressive as the next. There is a veritable smorgasbord of Jack's work in this auction, and his devoted fans are sure to be chomping at the bit to bid on these beauties. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition.

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 the 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.

Vince Colletta is an American comic book artist/ art director who's best known for inking Jack Kirby's work during the Silver Age of comic books. Colletta began his career working on a host of 1950's romance and western comics before making the move to Marvel where he would ink some their earliest stories, including The Fantastic Four, Journey Into Mystery/Thor and Daredevil. He would go on to DC where he inked Kirby again on a host of Kirby's Fourth World titles in addition to work on Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and an almost 70 issue run on Wonder Woman.
