What If (the Avengers Fought Evil During the 1950s?) #9 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
What If (the Avengers Fought Evil During the 1950s?) v1 #9, 1978 - This imaginary tale places the origin of the group a decade earlier, replacing core Avengers members with Venus, Gorilla Man, the Human Robot, Marvel Boy and the 3-D Man. Thor, Captain America and Iron Man, clearly aghast with the idea, fade into the background. Quite typically, Jack Kirby places the figures in motion within a reasonable layout. Simple and straightforward, the effort just meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include Alan Kupperberg and Bill Black. This is number 1 of 2 What If? issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or What If? issues. See also this blog's Jack Kirby checklist.
