Marvel Super Action #1 (1977)

Marvel Super Action #1 (Marvel, 1977)
Writer: Stan Lee/penciller: Jack Kirby/inker: Syd Shores
IT'S only a reprint, but I dug this ish, despite the muddy art reproduction of Captain America #100. Still, Kirby’s greatness shines through (especially his rendition of the Black Panther...or “The Panther” as he’s called throughout this ish). Lee’s yarn is silly (as usual) but it makes sense in that 1960s Marvel manner, which I love greatly. Kirby and Lee were a great duo – if only they’d had the brains to realise they needed each other to bring out the best in each other.
