Fly Me To The Moon by Jack Kirby

Waddaya do if your kid has a berserker rage and you want to straighten him out?  Another Kirby nod at one of his greatest passions, sci-fi.  If you're the dad and Odin the all-dad, you launch your kid into infinity.  Vinnie did ahright sorta on the inks, but we lost half the launch crew, and some of the fins on the ship (good thing fins aren't needed in a vacuum)

Shazam! Deux by Gil Kane

The first time we saw the motif discussed in the Shazam! post a minute back

The Thing by Jack Kirby

Dinosaurs by Berni Wrightson

Shadow Trad'n Card by Jim Steranko

Shazam! by Gil Kane

These pics from Cap'n Marvel #20 are a great homage to the original "Billy and the Big Kahuna" idea.  Makes me think of an old birth-of-rap song--Split personality/split personality/it's not my fault/it's the person insidea me.  If you havena yet, watch the movie Split. M. Night Shamalama is creating an amaz'n super-hero universe

Conan The Pirate by Rich Corben and Frank Frazetta

Onea my favorite verbal exchanges was in the first Pirates, when Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp are duel'n, and Orlando says shockingly, "You cheated!," and Johnny Depp says, "Hello--Pirate"

Alien Surveyors by Jack Kirby

Sherlock Holmes by Jim Steranko

One night Doc Watson and Sherlock Holmes were out camping.  In the middle of the night Holmes awakened the good doctor.  "Watson, what do you see?, he asked.  Rubbing his eyes, Watson said, "Well, Holmes, I see thousands and thousands of stars."  "And what do you deduce?," Sherlock then asked.  "That there must be a creator beyond our comprehension."  "Watson, you fool, someone has stolen our tent!"
Of course, after that, the game was afoot....

The Mastermind of Mars by Frank Frazetta

Avengers #27 by Don Heck and Jack Kirby

Not a big fan of Don Heck (never got over the mouth guards he inked for teeth on some of Buscema's best Avengers), but this ish had some great interiors, and of course another Kirby cover

Orion Express by Jack Kirby

One time Phil on Modern Family was explaining how versed he was in social media, and if I were to say WTF? here, he would know that meant Why The Face?  Phil is onea my idols
