KIRBY IN THE AVENGERS...



No, not the movie - the comic. I purchased THE COMING OF
THE AVENGERS recently (a beautifully recoloured reprint of the very
first issue - well worth having) and was surprised to see a young JACK
KIRBY as a member of RICK JONES' BLEEDIN' IRRITATIN' TEEN
BRIGADE. (I'm sure that's their full title.) Above is the cover to the issue
by Jack Kirby and DEAN WHITE) and below is a young JK standing just
behind and to the right (our right, that is) of Ricky-boy himself.


Whaddya think? Does it look like Kirby or not? Answers on a postcard
please to... (okay, just leave them in the comments section).

Kid said...

Are you saying that PRINCESS Eugenie is related to KING Kirby? (Okay, I grant you...it IS a wide-eyed Kirby.)

I forgot we were dealing with royalty there Kid.
Well spotted.

Kid said...

A stogie would clinch it.

Thor's face certainly is - but I like the rest of it.
