Our Fighting Forces #157 - Jack Kirby art & cover

 Jack Kirby
Our Fighting Forces v1 #157 featuring the Losers, 1975 - Crucial supplies are disappearing in Panama, where Johnny Cloud and company arrive for their next assignment. Once again, Jack Kirby's cover appears hurried and less detailed. Inside, a bistro owner named Panama Fattie makes her debut as one of Kirby's most quintessentially original characters. Expertly paced and illustrated, the story's high point is the double-page spread on pages 2-3. The scene's exotic interiors, complete with palms and native birds, reinforce the Central American setting. This is number 7 of 12 Our Fighting Forces issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
