First Appearance of Orion by Jack Kirby

Something like 4 versions of NG #1 cover, which I still wanna see bigger and better.  The first image here is dated 1976, but I suspect it was not drawn the same year as Jack's centennial Cap'n America


  1. 1976 = bicentennial, by the way.

  2. Thanks, James! It's been a while since I fell into that one! I was an Army brat growing up all over (Germany, mainly), but my pops retired to Colorado in 1970, and I feel almost like a Rocky Mountain native(married a native, by the by, thirty years ago this week). Anyhoo, Colorado became a state on Aug 1st, 1876, so in 1976 we were celebrating a centennial AND a bicentennial
