Foxhole #5 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Foxhole v1 #5, 1955 - Fiery pinks and reds seem to suggest the heat of battle on this intensely hued cover. Jack Kirby employs a single figure as the focal point of his layout. Cocked for a grenade throw, the soldier's arms and legs extend out to fill available space. His rifle's bayonet points menacingly at the masthead. Lesser know for his work on war comics, Kirby proves himself a master of the genre. This is number 5 of 6 Foxhole issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
