Jack Kirby really knocked himself out on this promotional poster for NBC's 1967 super-heroic spoof show Captain Nice. The art here promises so much more than the show can ever deliver alas. The show was a project by Buck Henry in the Get Smart tradition, but lasted only a single season.
There was one comic book featuring a photo of star William Daniels as Captain Nice. I think I might have a rubbish copy of this around here somewhere, but I'd be exceedingly hard-pressed to find it.
Here's a glimpse of the back over of that single comic.
Here is the splash page for the first story advertised on the cover, and you can go here to read the whole thing.
Here is the splash to the last story in the issue and you can go here to read all of it.
This is a glimpse of a novel which was produced to coincide with the show, showcasing the same photo of Daniels in all his Captain Nice glory.
