Fantastic Four #8 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Fantastic Four v1 #8, 1962 - The nefarious Puppet Master makes his debut, along with his blind step-daughter Alicia Masters. Jack Kirby's artwork is fairly conservative, but he breaks up the monotony by including chapter pages. Each employs a larger panel than usual. The best of these is the start of Part 5, where the Thing dislodges a stone prison wall with his bare hands. Kirby's disturbing cover makes up for his mediocre pin-up of the Human Torch. This is number 8 of 116 Fantastic Four issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
