Avengers #9 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Avengers v1 #9, 1964 - Baron Zemo's machine transforms Simon Williams into Wonder Man, intending to infiltrate and destroy the Avengers. Relinquishing the story art, Jack Kirby only contributes this cover. Floating heads showcase the main characters while hinting at the battle to come. While a commonly used technique, this effort seems less than enthusiastic. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck and Dick Ayers. This is number 9 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.
