Race for the Moon #3 - Jack Kirby / Al Williamson art, mis-attributed Kirby / Williamson cover

Jack Kirby
Race for the Moon v1 #3, 1958 - Like previous issue, the combination of Jack Kirby's pencils and Al Williamson's inks far exceed expectations. Some comic guides credit the cover to both artists, but it seems more likely inked by Joe Simon. Inside, four stores are magnificently rendered due to Kirby's kinetic style and Williamson's sensitive finishes. "Space Garbage", with its dramatic lighting and sublime textures, is a standout among them. This is number 3 of 3 Race for the Moon issues with Kirby art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Race for the Moon issues with Williamson and/or covers.
