Description

A combat veteran during World War II, Kirby brings hard-earned gritty realism to Atlas’s Battleground #14 and Battle Comics #64-70, while Jack Kirby and Stan Lee co-created Sgt. Fury in 1963. Here are #1-8, 10-20 and 25. Plus: 25 vintage and ultra-rare Atlas/Marvel romance titles, 1959-63 — many restored directly from Kirby’s original art!

Interestingly, while Kirby’s early romance work for the pioneering titles Young Love and Young Romance  (published by Prize) are plentiful, if pricey, these days, his work in the issues below, for Marvel, is really scarce. These were done at the same time Stan and Jack were still doing the monster books, and virtually the same months they were creating the first issues of The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk and more, 1961-63! Kirby was doing both covers and stories, usually inked by Dick Ayers, who was also inking his work on The Fantastic Four.

As we know, romance comics were never very widely collected; mostly read by girls, they were often discarded afterwords. So today, these minor Kirby gems are among the toughest of all of his comics to find. Now you’ll have them all in this collection.

Collects covers and stories from Battle #64-70, 1959-60; Battleground #14, 1956; Sgt. Fury #1-8, 10-20, 25, 1963-65.

And collects covers and stories from Love Romances #83-85, 87-88, 96-106, 1959-63; My Own Romance #71-76, 1959-60, and Teen-Age Romance #84-86, 1961-62.
