The World Around Us #35 / Spies - Jack Kirby art


The World Around Us v1 #35 / Spies, 1961 - From ancient times to the modern era, the business of spying is covered in this educational comic. Among the many artists involved, Jack Kirby contributes three very short stories. His drawings are not particularly exciting, suggesting a lack of time or effort. The inking also seems minimal, further hampering the pencils. On the positive side, George Evans does some of the best work of his career on this series. Other artists in this issue include Norman Nodell. This is number 4 of 5 World Around Us issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or World Around Us issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
