Here are some fantastic number one comic book covers from the years 1940 to 1970. They are all covers by Jack Kirby, many with the assistance of his longtime partner Joe Simon. Simon in fact might well have designed many of them and certainly inked even more. The covers here begin with first only issue of Red Raven and work through the war years at Marvel and DC with Captain America and Boy Commandos. Right after the war and Kirby's return from overseas, the team took on many projects for Harvey Comics, Prize Comics and their own Mainline Comics. Also here are some covers for Jack's second stints at both DC with Challengers of the Unknown and Marvel with Fantastic Four, Hulk and many others after his partnership with Simon had ended. Look for the rest of Kirby's number one issues from his later career later this year.
More to come.
