As he progressed, spreading his wings and trying new ideas and allowing his visions to blossom on the page, I remain impressed at how he evolved as an a storyteller as he got closer and closer to the 60th issue of the book.
And something else I have noticed...how Stan Lee all but utterly fucked his stories with his often confusing dialog and captions. Now I understand why Kirby was growing angrier and more frustrated with each passing month. To see his stories butchered by this glad-handing bastard of an editor must have been utterly maddening!
More, later, as I continue to read the issues and assemble my thoughts on Kirby's stories and what the company shill was doing to those stories.
