Iron Man #94
Iron Man #94
Tony Stark does his best James Bond impression, trading barbs with an industrial super villain in his secret undersea base. Problem is, instead of a suave bad guy like Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Tony is matching wits with The Kraken, a peg-legged, modern-day pirate who never-the-less talks like something out of Robert Louis Stevenson.
I like pirates as much as the next guy, but by the time Kraken got his jet-powered peg leg stuck in the floor, I was happy to see him drown. And that, dear readers, is a sentence I never thought I’d write!

Looks like a winner!
Love that Kirby+Milgrom cover!!! But a jet-peg that can’t blast its way free from a floor seems pretty darn useless. Let this be a lesson to cybernetic pirates everywhere: you need waterproof machinery to battle at sea.
I remember reading it… awkward to say the least.
And I didn’t get to see that fine Kirby cover as a compensation!
Paul, I suppose you get the cover from your Marvel online subscription. Could you get a larger resolution for the pages/covers you use for yours posts? Especially the Kirby covers,… In France we got very few original covers. I wasn’t aware did miss so many!
The covers I post are just screen captures from the Marvel Unlimited site. They come in at whatever resolution my iPad pro commands …
A screen capture from an iPad Pro should provide much more resolution. Weird.
Hey Paul, what about this theme for your next blogging commitment:
Jack Kirby 70’s Covers for Marvel!
Back when I did cover galleries, I would have jumped on it!
