This explosion of creativity did not taper off until issue #67 when, I am convinced, Kirby just go sick of handing his intellectual property off to the thieves for whom he labored. There are so many comics in this run (from #44 through #67) that blew my mind as a kid that I just forgot to add this one. It features one Kirby villain that I just never cared for: Klaw, the master of sound energy. Like most Kirby characters, he has a singular appearance, but the concept just fell flat for me.
What I had not recalled was the artwork from this issue! It is amazing! Kirby and Sinnott were on a tear with this one. I'll have to photograph pages and panels from this issue and post them later. For now, just the cover.
