PART TEN OF KIRBY 'KOCK-UPS' - A THUNDERING 'THOR' HEAD...


Images copyright MARVEL COMICS

It's arguable where the 'Kock-Up' is - is it in this page or the
ones that followed it in JOURNEY Into MYSTERY #83.  You
see, JACK KIRBY drew one kind of helmet on the splash page,
but a different kind in subsequent pages.  Take a look - a helmet
with a fin, above, one with a point, below.  Still wonderfully
drawn 'though, with great inking by JOE SINNOTT

Biggest kock up was the spelling of Thorr in the last frame.

But that wasn't Kirby's 'Kock-Up'.

Which Phil is this? 'Dr. Strange' Phil, or impostor Phil?

Phil said...

Not the Strange Phil. We shall have to have some sort of nomenclature to sort this out. Perhaps you should give us code names.

Kid said...

So whose comments did I delete on a previous post when I thought someone was misappropriating the 'Phil' name? Yours or the other Phil's?

Phil said...

Not the Strange Phil I'm still here. Also I have this comic all original the pride of my collection. And notice his helmet is blue, I sort of like that.

Kid said...

Thor's costume changed over the early issues, Phil. He lost the black bits that extended from his wrist-bands, and gained some sort of straps on his boots, as well as other minor revisions. Yeah, I liked the blue helmet as well.

I look at that splash page and see my "Fantastic" annual!

Kid said...

A brilliant cover on that Fantastic Annual, JP. It looks as if Jack's Thor figure was traced and then painted over.
