Strange Tales of the Unusual #7 - Jack Kirby art

Strange Tales of the Unusual v1 #7, 1956 - Landing on Earth, an alien begin to survey the terrain and take soil samples while impervious to military weapons. Jack Kirby displays his usual inventiveness, creating a visitor with almost totemic features (see interior page below). His artwork is largely competent, pencils and inks working equally in tandem. Looking closer, I suspect this could be among the rare times Kirby inked his own work. Other artists in this issue include Dick Ayers, Vic Carrabotta, Sol Brodsky, Bob Forgione, Jack Abel, Marie Severin, Ernie Bache, and Carl Burgos (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Strange Tales of the Unusual issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Strange Tales of the Unusual issues.
