Beautiful cover. I especially like the coloring on the foreground figure of Izzy. It really makes him stand out (probably the work of Stan Goldberg)

This strikes me as a below-average Kirby cover. Not "gorgeous." What's so great about it?

The colouring is really good on this one. I've noticed that there's a period there where Marvel had really good colouring effects on the covers, which completely vanished in the late 1960s.

Can't put my finger on why exactly I like this cover, but I've had it on my desktop for a few days and keep admiring it. Just a sense of energy combined with some grit. A lot of it might not come through with just the smaller scan.

I do agree the coloring is far superior to what most comics were doing at that time!
