KID'S KLASSIC (KIRBY) KOMIC KOVERS - SHOWCASE #6...
As noted before, I'm not too impressed with this cover by
JACK KIRBY, for various reasons. First, the way the group
of three CHALLENGERS Of The UNKNOWN are separated
from bleeding into the fourth is extremely clumsy in my opinion.
Also, the figure in the foreground gives the impression of having
just cracked the egg with his hammer, but he's too far away to
have landed a blow. And surely the egg is too small to contain
the creature emerging from it! Considering that this was the
team's introduction, the cover could have - should have -
been far more dynamic than it actually was.
