Our Fighting Forces #156 - Jack Kirby art & cover

 Jack Kirby
Our Fighting Forces v1 #156 featuring the Losers, 1975 - Ending their furlough in Manhattan, the heroes are tasked with finding a u-boat off the Long Island shore. Jack Kirby does a capable job overall, but his opening spread is his most arresting to date on the series. Giving readers a birds-eye view, a massive ship is violently blown apart by Nazi torpedoes while American planes fly overhead. Mike Royer takes over as inker, reinforcing Kirby's dynamic pencils. The artist's cover, on the other hand, looks stiff by comparison. Accompanying the main story are two informative pages on military headgear. This is number 6 of 12 Our Fighting Forces issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Our Fighting Forces issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
