X-Men #8 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
X-Men v1 #8, 1964 - Encountering a mutant who's literally untouchable, the X-Men must devise an unusual plan of attack. Jack Kirby's radial-designed cover leads into a more complex, yet unified opening splash. His artwork is capable throughout, augmenting his fine storytelling. Chic Stone's inks are just adequate. Included in this issue is a terrific pin-up page of the Beast. This is number 8 of 17 X-Men issues with Kirby art and/or covers (not including reprints).
