57 YEARS AGO TODAY it was a tough time to be a Kirby fan.

Since the beginning of the 1958 only 3 comics were published with interior Kirby art. 

ALARMING TALES #4 (from Harvey) had one 5 page story.

HOUSE OF MYSTERY #72 (from DC) had one 6 page story
and this one 6 page story appeared in DC's TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED #23

54 YEARS AGO TODAY if it was the first day of the year that you went shopping you would find four new Kirby/Ayers covers

These three would also have 13 pages of interior Kirby/Ayers art.

If you were a Western fan you probably would have bought RAWHIDE KID #21 and been rewarded with 18 pages of Kirby/Ayers story art.
If you ARE a fan of Kirby's pencils and Ayers' accurately inked Western Era weaponry and clothing this page will be auctioned off in about two weeks. CLICK HERE
