Avengers #9 - Cover

After drawing the first 8 issues, Kirby went to just drawing the covers for AVENGERS with this issue (returning to layout a few issues a while later).

I have to say, that's way to big an intro blurb for a character as lame as Wonder Man.

Is this the first "floating heads" cover that Marvel had? I know the format became a bit of a cliche in 1970s Marvel team books, but were there any before this one?

Chic Stone inks the cover this time.

Published 1964

Great blog and all, but I know you did not just diss my man Wonderman!
