Fantastic Four #52 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Fantastic Four v1 #52, 1966 - Lured to the African nation of Wakanda by the gift of an advanced flying vehicle, the foursome soon find themselves the prey of its ruling hunter. Jack Kirby and Stan Lee make history by introducing the Black Panther, the first black superhero in comics. On the cover, an oversized moon conveniently serves as a contrast against T'Challa's costume. Inside, Kirby revels in juxtaposing traditional African attire with futuristic technology, featured on his largest panels. The Black Panther's image is darker and more villainous, but would soon evolve due to his popularity (including losing the attached cape). This story was later reprinted in >Marvel's Greatest Comics #39. This is number 52 of 116 Fantastic Four issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
