100 Days Of The King - Day 5
This amazing splash is the final page of the final issue of the epic Silver Surfer run. Jack "King" Kirby, already out the door for the DC domain, was tapped to help revive the comic in a last ditch effort. It failed, but we did get this awesome portrait inked by Herb Trimpe.
Some have suggested the rage expressed by this "Savage" Silver Surfer was actually the pent up anger which Kirby himself had been nursing for some time as he watched Stan being given credit for what Kirby had largely created, All that and the refusal of Marvel to seemingly even discuss improving his financial situation relative to the company's improving place in the market. And they say Marvel never saw it coming.
