DescriptionJack Kirby and Joe Simon - Black Magic Unused Cover Original Art (Prize, circa 1952). The Simon and Kirby team's work for Prize was the refined culmination of their long partnership in comics -- their hard-hitting artwork was more detailed than their 1940s work and more finished as well. This wild and wooly scene (perhaps deemed too intense by the newly established Comics Code Authority) has been regarded by many Kirby aficionados as a precursor to the "prehero" Marvel monster books that Kirby is celebrated for. This unused Black Magic shocker finally saw print in Kirby's 1971 portfolio Kirby Unleashed. The image area of the cover measures 12.5" x 17.5". The logo is a carefully color-matched replacement; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.
