X-Men #2 - Jack Kirby art & cover (key)

Jack Kirby
X-Men v1 #2, 1963 - How you can stop a villain who can disappear in an instant? Professor X and team pursue the Vanisher all the way to Washington DC. Too many figures with too little hierarchy make this Jack Kirby cover less than ideal. His interior art, however, has plenty of action throughout the story. Dynamically drawn, the more memorable scenes showcase the X-men put to the test in the Danger Room (see interior page below). Perhaps most noteworthy is Kirby's excellent opening splash, depicting the entire team moving in tandem. This Marvel silver age superhero story, featuring the Vanisher's key first appearance, was later reprinted in Amazing Adventures v4 #3 and #4. This is number 2 of 17 X-men issues with Kirby art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Kirby or >X-men issues on ebay.
