Comment: Captain Marvel Adventures #1 was drawn by Jack Kirby. It's early days for Kirby (I believe this book predates his partnership with Joe Simon) but the artist's dynamic style is unmistakeable.

Comment: This work IS by Joe Simon & Jack Kirby. They did it while moonlighting from their assignments for Timely Comics. It was a rushed job and they attempted to imitate the C.C. Beck drawing style.
