Punch and Judy Comics v2 #11 - Jack Kirby art


Punch and Judy Comics v2 #11, 1947 - One of the secondary features, Lockjaw the Alligator becomes a celebrity due to his stunningly bright white numerous teeth. Jack Kirby and Joe Simon pair up to deliver one of several anthropomorphic animal stories. Slightly less defined and detailed and their other works, the art is surprisingly engaging. The same goes for "Earl the Rich Rabbit", although less polished and less recognizable. Other artists in this issue include Orestes Calpini. This is number 3 of 6 Punch and Judy issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Punch and Judy Comics issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
