    Jack Kirby - Black Cat Mystic #59 Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1957). Jack Kirby's contributions to the comic book industry are legendary. When you see his work, you can't help but marvel at the absolute love that he felt for the medium. Regardless of assignment, he put his heart into each project and turned out one compelling image after another -- visions such as this one featuring a strange boy "erasing himself from sight!" It's a concept Kirby would return to on the famous cover of Tales to Astonish #49, only a few years later. The image area of the cover is 13" x 18.5". The text caption at the bottom, the Comics Code stamp, the "Strange Suspense Tales" blurb, the "Thrill Adventures" logo, the word "Cat" in the title immediately below the "Thrill" logo, the September stat, and the ten-cent stat are all replacements. With only minor paper aging and a minimal use of white-out, this piece is in Very Good condition.
