Tales of Suspense #21 - Jack Kirby art & cover, Steve Ditko art

Jack Kirby
Tales of Suspense v1 #21, 1961 - Landing on Earth, the alien Klagg discovers mankind's penchant for war and decides to incapacitate the human race. Jack Kirby's tale is lengthier than normal, but drawn with skill and confidence (this was later reprinted in Where Monsters Dwell #20). His second story, of an inventor who travels back in time to ancient Rome, is equally enjoyable. Steve Ditko's artwork is on a similar par with his tale, about a man who sees someone else when looking into a mirror. Most impressive are his splendid layouts and sequencing.
