Brave and the Bold #1 - Joe Kubert art & cover (1st Viking Prince, Silent Knight, Golden Gladiator)

Joe Kubert
Brave and the Bold v1 #1, 1955 - One of DC's long running titles, this premiere issue features the first appearances of the Silent Knight and the Golden Gladiator. Joe Kubert introduces the Viking Prince, a man with no memory of his warrior past. Despite the relatively small panels, the artist fills the pages with swashbuckling action. Both figure drawings and backgrounds are ample in detail, especially the opening scene (page 2 panel 1). Kubert's partial cover is not original, but comes from the opening splash of the interior story. Other artists in this issue include Russ Heath and Irv Novick. This is number 1 of 32 Brave and the Bold issues with Kubert art and/or covers (not including reprints).
