Our Fighting Forces #158 - Jack Kirby art & cover

 Jack Kirby
Our Fighting Forces v1 #158 featuring the Losers, 1975 - The Japanese infiltrate Central America, intent on destroying the Panama Canal. The Losers must find the kamikazes before they go airborne. Jack Kirby again rewards his readers with a bold two-page spread of a Japanese plane in a makeshift hangar. Heavily detailed and meticulously drawn, this stunning illustration partially compensates the rather abrupt story ending. In keeping with the theme, Kirby also provides two pages on Nazi jets in development during World War Two. This is number 8 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.
