55 YEARS AGO TODAY Proto-Marvel had already shipped half of their comics for February: KID COLT OUTLAW #98, STRANGE TALES #84, TALES OF SUSPENSE #17 and TALES TO ASTONISH #19.
100% of those comics had Kirby/Ayers covers and 75% of them had 13 pages of Kirby story art.
The origin of proto-Magneto (from STRANGE TALES #84) was about a year ahead of its time.

You might have bought this Kirby-covered comic while waiting for the Beatles to make their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance.
Hopefully you didn't mind that only the cover was by Kirby.
If you were more interested in the latest episodes of GUNSMOKE, WAGON TRAIN, RAWHIDE, THE VIRGINIAN and BONANZA than the Beatles' Sunday Sullivan Show appearances maybe you were convinced by this Kirby cover to buy...
You guessed it. No Kirby interior artwork.
