X-Men #17 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
X-Men v1 #17, 1966 - Recovering from their last battle, the X-men must return to their school before unexpected guests arrive and discover their secret. Jack Kirby's red hot cover suggests the unknown, yet palpable danger that awaits them. While his layouts appear minimal on most of the pages, three splashes stand out. Kirby most likely pencilled these himself, which accounts for their superior quality. This is number 17 of 17 X-Men issues with Kirby art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Kirby or X-men issues.
