Warfront #30 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Warfront v1 #30, 1957 - Bullets, bombs, explosions... Jack Kirby has it all on this frenetic cover design. Much of the action seems to occur outside the frame, but the composition is sound regardless. Fine lines finish off on Kirby's bold pencils, but are inconsistent with Joe Simon's style on other issues. Regardless on who the inker is, the results are more than capable. Other artists in this issue include Bob Powell and Lee Elias. This is number 3 of 4 Warfront issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Warfront issues.
