Here’s another piece of art Kirby withheld from Marvel - a splash page of the Watcher in his space suit. There’s evidence that Kirby intended to reveal that the Watcher and Galactus were from the same race/planet/people, but Stan Lee had other plans. This pencil art was first published in Kirby Unleashed in 1971.
Jack Kirby’s original pencil drawings for Agatha Harkness. He withheld design because it was “too good for them” (Marvel). Read more eye-popping factoids in John Morrow’s “Key 1960s Moments” timeline.on The Kirby Effect.
A photocopy of Kirby’s pencil art, with lettering, from Thor 166 (July 1969), featuring “Him”; like the Silver Surfer, he was another character Jack felt was changed from the direction he had planned for the character. See Mike Gartland’s “How Could He Not Know?” on the Kirby Effect.
Here’s a scan of a photocopy of Jack Kirby’s pencil art for a splash from “The Ladies Of The Gang!” Kirby’s finished version, inked and lettered by Mike Royer, was recently published in DC Comics’ “In The Days of the Mob” hardcover.
