Silver Surfer graphic novel - Jack Kirby art


The Silver Surfer graphic novel, 1978 - This ambitious project by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby is arguably Marvel's first graphic novel, preceding the Death of Captain Marvel by several years (their paperbacks up to this point were reprints). At one hundred pages, this story is the longest of Kirby's career. Interspersed within are eight full page splashes and two double page spreads. The drawings are expectedly bold and dynamic, allowing for several experimental compositions. Certain pages (21, 57, 58 in particular) all break from the typical layout, expanding variety and visual interest. Kirby's crisp artwork makes this novel one of his best works of the late bronze age. Other artists in this issue include Earl Norem (cover).
