Silver Surfer #18 - Jack Kirby art

Silver Surfer v1 #18 marvel comic book cover art by Jack Kirby
Silver Surfer v1 #18, 1970 - Inadvertently, the Silver Surfer encroaches upon the hidden city of the Inhumans. Jack Kirby illustrates the ensuing battle, stepping in to complete the final issue of the historic series. The artist not only provides his typically bone-jarring fight scenes, but the lyrical architecture of a futuristic cityscape. Smartly composed and confidently drawn, the artwork also boasts three phenomenal splash pages. The last is an extreme close-up of the Silver Surfer, directing his rage at the viewer. This is number 1 of 1 Silver Surfer issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Silver Surfer issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.

  3. Overstreet credits this to Kirby, but it is pretty mediocre compared to the inside art. You could be right. If not Kirby, Trimpe would be the likely candidate.
