Great Covers – KAMANDI #23

Another Jack Kirby cover, this one for his KAMADI series from the early 1970s. This piece just screams for attention. The shark-as-monster who dominates the image to the inclusion of virtually everything else is powerful enough, but the fact that he speaks, and his line is at once so obtuse and yet also so provocative, puts it over the top. the red of the inside of the shark’s maw pulls focus like a spotlight.
