Iron Man #80 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Iron Man v1 #80, 1975 - Jack Kirby executes the first of many disappointing covers on this title. Iron Man's centered position and symmetrical layout is fairly commonplace in comics, with little to illicit excitement. At first glance, it seems that two of the background planets attach to the hero's hands. While stylistically recognizable, Kirby has done far better. Other artists in this issue include Chic Stone and Vince Colletta. This is number 1 of 6 Iron Man issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Iron Man issues. See also this blog's Jack Kirby checklist.
