Amazing Adventures v3 #2 - Jack Kirby art

Amazing Adventures v3 #2 featuring the Inhumans and Black Widow, 1970 - A missile attack seemingly originates from the Baxter Building, forcing the Inhumans to retaliate against the Fantastic Four. Jack Kirby's opening splash features the ominously floating heads of the super-powered outcasts. Most of the pages struggle with panels too small and too frenetically paced. Ultimately, Kirby's artwork falters on one of his beloved creations. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema and John Verpoorten. This is number 8 of 10 Amazing Adventures issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Amazing Adventures issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.

  1. That cover looks like Buscema is trying to channel Kirby (and not too well). Could the inks be by Chic Stone?

  2. I think John Buscema's style is all his own here, but I agree it's not his best. I recently ran into some of his earlier non-Marvel works and they're terrific. May have to add him to the list someday. Not sure about the inks...

  3. I believe the cover is inked by John Verpoorten.
