Weird Mystery Tales #3 - Jack Kirby art, mis-attributed Jim Starlin art


Weird Mystery Tales v1 #3, 1972 - An intriguing image of spontaneous human combustion opens this issue, Jack Kirby's third story originally drawn for Spirit World magazine. His sharply defined style is generally less realistic but more fantastical and emotional. His photo-montage inserted within the story is less successful, but the aforementioned opening splash is effectively enticing. No Jim Starlin art in this issue, despite what some comic book guides say. His work does appear in Weird Mystery Tales #4. Other artists in this issue include Howard Purcell, Jack Abel, Ruben Moriera and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 3 of 3 Weird Mystery Tales issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
