Avengers #4 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Avengers v1 #4, 1964 - In this milestone issue, a newly revived Captain America joins the mighty Avengers after decades frozen in ice. The Sub-mariner plays a part in the revival and enters the fray toward the end of the story. Jack Kirby's bold yet crowded cover is somewhat diminished by George Roussos' sloppy inking. Inside, the artwork is slightly more palatable, recalling the disastrous events leading to Cap's suspended animation and subsequent resurrection. Among Kirby's many capable drawings, perhaps most impressive is Cap's combat sequence on page 13. This is number 4 of 38 Avengers issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Avengers issues. See also this blog's Jack Kirby checklist.
