THE COMIC READER #100! Jack Kirby Draws Batman and Superman! Rare 1973 Art!

To celebrate Jack "King" Kirby's birthday, here is the cover to THE COMIC READER #100, from 1973! It was very rare then to see Jack's take on such DC favorites like Superman or Batman, let alone Captain Marvel! Jack even tossed in good ol' Captain America, just to remind us that he co-created the Marvel Comics universe, too! This fanzine (that usually sported non-color covers) was a long-running publication that kept fans informed and on the inside, years before the internet and blogs such as this one existed!
