The Sandman #3 - Jack Kirby cover

The Sandman v1 #3, 1975 - Is the title hero appearing within the woman's dream, emerging from it, or both? Jack Kirby's cover design could stand more clarity. The encroaching ape on the left also looks uncomfortably squeezed into the remaining negative space. Kirby's uniquely graphic drawing skills are evident though the cover just falls below expectations. Ernie Chua (Chan) draws the interior story in a disappointingly similar style. Kirby would thankfully resume the pencilling chores with the following issue. This is number 3 of 6 Sandman issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Sandman issues.
