My Greatest Adventure #17 - Jack Kirby art

My Greatest Adventure v1 #17, 1957 - A ham radio hobbyist uses his wealth to fund four expeditions, placing mysterious rods in the highest, lowest, hottest and coldest places on Earth. Jack Kirby's pencils are made more expressive by his own superb inking. Depth, drama and interest are maintained by careful divisions of light and shadow. With the exception of the googly-eyed portrait on page 3 panel 7, Kirby does an admirable job on this sci-fi tale. This story was later reprinted in House of Mystery #199. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Moreira and Nick Cardy. This is number 3 of 6 My Greatest Adventure issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or My Greatest Adventure issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
