My Moment Of Total Triumph! by Jack Kirby

When I saw Jim Steranko's take on Loki (I saw it at my buddy Jan's ((or Yahn or John)) house in 1973 as a two by three foot poster from an art class project), I thought wow, no one has ever drawn Loki this way....but I now know Kirby was drawing Loki that way all along, before colettaeditta and inks

Freaks by Berni Wrightson

Couldnae find a bigger Freaks II (later that same day?), but she's super-freaky, the kind you don't take home to mother.  Rick James passed way too early

Sub Mariner VS Iron Man Re-Visited by Jack Kirby

Picked up a beat copy of Tales To Astonish #82 today for a song, and as I was showing the seller why it was so cool with the first silver-age crossover at Marvel, and Gene Colan gets the flu, so Kirby steps in ala Cap'n America #112 (the seller thanked me, bytheby, say'n he had no idea), it occurred to me that my post about it two years ago was somehow not enough.  I wanted just these three half-splashes to summarize the fight: Subby lands the first major blow, then they go toe-to-boot, then Iron Man delivers the K O.....sweet
