Avengers #7 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Avengers v1 #7, 1964 - Exiled to Earth from Asgard, the Executioner and Enchantress team up with Baron Zemo to defeat Thor and Captain America. Amazingly, Jack Kirby manages to fit all the characters into a cohesive cover design. His interior pages are similarly crafted, aided by Chic Stone's adequate inking. The most vivid scene occurs on page 11, as a drugged Thor is conditioned to see his fellow Avengers as his foes (see interior page below). This is  number 7 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.
