Thor #169 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Thor v1 #169, 1969 - In a moment of weariness, the planet-devouring Galactus reveals his origin to the god of thunder. Jack Kirby fills the issue with large and varied panels within reasonably-designed layouts. Sadly, George Klein's inking detracts from both story and cover. A lack of clarity and definition hampers the drawings, making them more crude and amateurish. The result is a fairly mediocre issue, something rarely described in Kirby's late silver age works. This is number 44 of 61 Thor issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
