Tales of Suspense #39 - Jack Kirby cover, Steve Ditko art

Jack Kirby
Tales of Suspense v1 #39, 1963 - Iron Man makes his astonishing debut in this issue. Unfortunately, Jack Kirby's cover is too simplistic and uninspired. Steve Ditko does far better with his tale, about a modern seafarer who lands on an uncharted island occupied by ancient vikings. His opening splash is minimal, but effective in setting a mysterious tone. Ditko's artwork is skillfully drawn, typical of his superb craftsmanship during the silver age. This story was later reprinted in Creatures on the Loose #22. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Don Heck.
