Captain America #106 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Captain America v1 #106, 1968 - Jack Kirby continues his exceptional streak on this series. This frenetic cover, however, has always baffled me due to its poor foreshortening of limbs. A replicate Steve Rogers threatens the real Cap, though it's not especially obvious until you read the story. The antagonist's arms and legs seem stunted, almost dwarf-like in nature. Inside, Kirby delivers over twenty pages of superbly drawn and composed pages. Two splashes help in the pacing, including one of the hero in dramatic mid-leap. This is number 7 of 34 Captain America issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Captain America issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.

  1. Looks like Giacoia inks on the cover as well (big, bold, dynamic, and a little clunky). Shores was a bit more refined.
