House of Mystery #63 - Jack Kirby art


House of Mystery v1 #63, 1957 - Two geologists unearth a giant bird egg in Madagascar, which soon hatches into a mythological Roc. As usual, Jack Kirby's style works perfectly with these fantasy-themed stories. Though most of the panels are small, the artist still effectively conveys the Roc's massive scale. Kirby delivers yet another enjoyable read. This story was later reprinted in Super DC Giant #S-20. Other artists in this issue include Mort Meskin, Bill Ely and Nick Cardy. This is number 2 of 11 House of Mystery issues with Kirby art and/or covers (not including reprints).
