Captain America #126 - Jack Kirby cover

Captain America v1 #126, 1970 - Jack Kirby's handiwork is fairly obvious on this dynamic cover. It does appear the two heroes may have been modified by John Romita, especially the Falcon. The layout is a bit clumsy as well, particularly the insertion of the villain Diamond Head on the far left. While not as impactful as his previous Captain America covers, Kirby just meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia. This is number 12 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. The Falcon looks like Romita - but if you look closely, you will discover a sign with Bill Everetts name on it in the background.
