There Must Always Be A Cave Of Cool And Jack Kirby Should Design It

First up is Black Magic #33, and I've got to say, I absolutely LOVE the fact that Jack designed three different undersea exploration outfits for the dudes on this cover! I'd imagine most artists would've been happy to create one design and stick with it, but not our Jack! There's also a nice sense of malevolence with the giant fish that can think like a man -- note that one eye appears to be partly closed, a visual device that Jack would use more extensively starting in the 1970s to create a sense of cold-blooded insanity.
