Avengers #5 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Avengers v1 #5, 1964 - To save themselves, an underground civilization circumvents a disaster by passing it along to the surface world. The cover is a bit too crowded, squeezing in not only all the Avengers, but an army of lava men and their various weapons. For the most part, Jack Kirby's story art falls just below expectations. From the opening splash's team portrait to the "Living Rock" that threatens mankind, the drawings are a tad less solid. This is number 5 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.
