Charlie Chan #5 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby

Charlie Chan v1 #5, 1949 - A Nazi war criminal, a monkey and a femme fatale comprise this fine Jack Kirby cover. The Chinese detective and his adversary are equally weighted in the layout, while the woman in green serves as a counter balance. Deftly drawn, I especially like how the gun points not only to the title character, but to emerging reinforcements in the background. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino and Dick Briefer. This is number 5 of 6 Charlie Chan issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Charlie Chan issues.
