Weird Mystery Tales #2 - Jack Kirby art

Weird Mystery Tales v1 #2, 1972 - Originally slated for Spirit World magazine, Jack Kirby's tale of "Toxl the World Killer" combines sword & sorcery and science fiction. The artist follows the first page with a dramatic two page spread, introducing the character in an uncommonly static layout. That aside, Kirby's battle scenes are dependably violent, culminating in a splash of a planet's massive destruction. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel and Howard Purcell (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Weird Mystery Tales issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Weird Mystery Tales issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
