Secret Missions #1 - Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Secret Missions v1 #1, 1950 - Coinciding with the anti-Communist fervor of the 1950s, St. John publishes this one-shot issue featuring the exploits of U.S. foreign agents. Cover artist Joe Kubert conveys the theme with an abundance of visual information. The strewn packages of pantyhose and the framed portrait help establish the woman as the fallen man's lover. The exotic furnishings and the onion dome silhouettes in the background place the setting on foreign soil. Even with a multitude of elements, Kubert maintains compositional balance and interest. This is number 1 of 1 Secret Missions issues with Kubert art and/or covers.
