Black Panther #1 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Black Panther v1 #1, 1977 - Over a decade since his debut, the Black Panther gets his own self-titled series. Accompanying an avid collector named Abner Little, the hero helps locate a stolen artifact from King Solomon's time. Jack Kirby's cover may seem convoluted, but his interior pages are spacious and well crafted. Three full splashes and a thrilling double-page spread reside in this action-packed story. Kirby's phenomenal pencils (aided by Mike Royer's terrific inking) ensures this series has a promising beginning. This is number 1 of 12 Black Panther issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
