Race for the Moon #1 - non-attributed Jack Kirby cover, mis-attributed Jack Kirby art

Jack Kirby
Race for the Moon v1 #1, 1958 - Part of Harvey Comics' brief foray into the science fiction genre during the 1950s, this title was ultimately short lived. According to some comic book guides, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon drew an interior half-page but this doesn't appear to be the case. Bob Powell appears to have done most of the artwork. The same sources also neglected to mention Simon and Kirby's capable cover. The layout seems sparse at first, but the artist perhaps wanted to emphasize the vastness of space. This is number 1 of 3 Race for the Moon issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
