"Forever People", #9, July 1972, Written and Illustrated by Jack Kirby (published by National Periodical Publications, INC, New York 1972) - Part 2

I picked up this and several other issues of "Forever People" at a car boot sale last year and was so pleased with their immaculate condition and how great the artwork looked! Jack Kirby(1917-1994) was a prolific artist, responsible for the creation of so many comic superheroes - Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, Iron Man to name but a few! The American comics industry just wouldn't be the same without his enormous input over a period of some sixty years. The "Forever People" were probably lesser known characters but the drawings are so full of energy, brilliantly composed for maximum suspense, and with classic sound effects! This Wikipedia article on his life and work is quite extensive but there are many other websites dedicated on his work and many books:
