    Description

    Jack Kirby and Al Williamson Blast-Off #1 The 3 Rocketeers Complete 5-Page Story "Lunar Goliaths" Original Art (Harvey, 1965). Though published in the sixties, this yarn was likely drawn in the fifties. S&K maven Harry Mendryk has explained, "Jack Kirby's pencils are in the same style used for the 1958 Race For the Moon and not at all a match for what he was doing in 1965 for Marvel Comics. The inking of the two Blast-Off Kirby stories is more like the first, presumably earlier, group. Absent are any sign of most of the techniques I have described from Al Williamson's inking of his own pencils." In any case, this sci-fi thriller is a visual delight. Each page has an image area of 12" x 18", and the art averages Very Good condition. From the Joe Simon Estate.
