Fighting American #5 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Fighting American v1 #5, 1954 - On the cover, Fighting American and sidekick Speedboy seem almost casual in their last minute rescue. Jack Kirby's three interior stories fare are drawn dependably, but lack the forcefully compelling first pages of previous issues. Of these, "The Year Bender" contains the only splash and is merely adequate at best. Still, Simon & Kirby's illustrations are distinctive and stand out better than most in this era. This is number 5 of 8 Fighting American issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
