Source For Victory!

This memorable cover from Jack Kirby's creator-owned project Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers published by Pacific Comics is apparently a re-worked version of the the artwork below.

The Captain Victory figure is intact and exact but the background and foreground elements have been changed pretty dramatically.

  1. I'm as big a fan of Jack who ever lived. When he was at the top of his game he was unbeatable, but - I'm sad to say that these images look awful to me, Rip, especially the 2nd one. Too many squiggly lines and the perspective is shot to hell. (Who's the GI Joe sized figure running between CV's legs.

    1. No clue. Certainly Kirby lost a step in the 80's, but he's still pretty impressive. His art gets more and more open and impressionistic as he goes.
