The Sandman #5 - Jack Kirby art & cover

The Sandman v1 #5, 1975 - A confidently drawn splash opens this tale, depicting Jed and his grandfather fending off a sea serpent. Jack Kirby's well-honed sense of design is evident in this issue, despite some crowding on the final pages. Mike Royer's inks do justice to Kirby's story pencils, but much less so on the minimally-finished cover. This is number 5 of 6 Sandman issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Sandman issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
