Mister Miracle #6 - Jack Kirby art, cover & reprint, mis-attributed Steve Ditko art

Mister Miracle v1 #6, 1972 - Mike Royer's splendid inks continue to add polish to Jack Kirby's formidable pencils. Story panels are large and spacious, most placed in symmetrical layouts. Action-packed scenes comprise most of the story, including the obligatory full page splash of a bound Mister Miracle. The cover picks up a similar theme but is not as visually compelling. Kirby's opening splash is the high point, introducing the tale's antagonist in shadow. Note how the craggy edges on the top of the panel echo the shapes in the sculpted bust below, pulling together the art and typography. The issue also contains a Simon & Kirby Boy Commandos reprint from the golden age (Boy Commandos #1). No Steve Ditko art, despite what some comic book price guides say. This is number 6 of 18 Mr. Miracle issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
