PART SIXTEEN OF KIRBY 'KOCK-UPS' - JACK CURES BALDNESS...
I'm currently re-reading my Jack Kirby Jimmy Olsen issues and have spotted yet another of Jack's kooky 'kock-ups' in #s 142 & 143. In the former ish, the person who shot and killed Jim Harper (the original Golden Guardian) is revealed as a balding, bare-faced baddie, but in the next issue, he's sporting a full head of hair and a moustache, as well as being slightly foreign looking. (At least Jack drew him holding the 'phone in the same hand.)
Perhaps the guy he's speaking to asked him to hold for a moment so he took the opportunity to affix his toupee and false moustache? Or maybe that beer he's drinking has been spiked with hair restorer? Whatever the reason, it's yet another lapse in continuity that Jack was so (in)famous for throughout his distinguished comics career. If you'd like to see previous examples of this sort of thing, just type 'Kirby Kock-Ups' into the blog's search box and all shall be revealed.
