Finally at number 75 in the countdown my favorite comic-book artist of all time gives us his version of Atlas in 1st Issue Special #1. I honestly don’t remember a whole lot about this book but the cover rocks with typical frenetic Kirby action. This cover seems to MOVE…the bad guys look like they are circling around and running about while Atlas is raising and twirling one of them over his head. He looks like he is about to toss that guy across a field or something. Just awesome.
More to come!
