Avengers #19 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Avengers v1 #19, 1965 - The swashbuckling Swordsman makes his debut. Jack Kirby draws the main figure and the general cover design, but it appears Don Heck did the four portraits. Background details are impressive, despite the inaccurate perspective. This centered layout would have been far better off if Kirby had completed it himself. Other artists in this issue include Dick Ayers. This is number 19 of 38 Avengers issues with Kirby art and/or covers.

  1. This is a strange one and may well have been the initial concept drawing of the Swordsman by Kirby, with vignettes plus background added by Heck to make the cover.
