House of Mystery #85 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
House of Mystery v1 #85, 1959 - Similar to his work in Tales to Astonish and Tales of Suspense, Jack Kirby chronicles the discovery of giant monolithic sculptures on an uncharted isle. Obviously inspired by the statues of Easter Island, the artist makes these behemoths more animated and threatening. The inks, possibly by Kirby himself, are perfectly suited to the expressionistic style of the pencils. Both cover and story art are splendid examples of his pre-Marvel superhero work. This story was later reprinted in DC Special #11. Other artists in this issue include Jim Mooney and Bill Ely. This is number 11 of 11 House of Mystery issues with Kirby art and/or covers (not including reprints).
