I think the Green Team one was drawn by Jerry Grandenetti.

Yep (and written by Joe Simon - no Kirby at all, there).

Here's issues #4-6 of SILVER STAR (from the 80's).  I thought he and CAPTAIN VICTORY were really strong creations for Kirby to have kept the rights to.

Here's Kirby's SANDMAN!  (Co-created and first issue written by Joe Simon, then Michael Fleisher takes over the writing after that.)  It's funny--DC's got about five different versions of the Sandman running around, and they're all pretty cool!  (Even Stan Lee & Walt Simonson's one-shot Sandman was the most interesting of the JUST IMAGINE series.)  All inked by Mike Royer except #1 inked by Frank Giacoia.

Kirby didn't do the cover for #6, but he drew the inside--inked by Wally Wood!  (Need to track those pages down!)






Five covers in a row with somebody in bed at the bottom!  I had to do a doubletake to make sure the kid on covers #1 & 2 weren't the same picture!  (#6 by Bill Draut had no bed.)

I had that Sandman #4.

Yet another Kirby cover that gave me the willies in my youth!

How do I go about looking for that late '70s (I think it was) Silver Surfer book by Kirby with Stan Lee? I can't seem to find it. :^(

Rebecca, check online for THE SILVER SURFER: THE ULTIMATE COSMIC EXPERIENCE, Simon & Schuster 1978.

See if that rings a bell

1978 did it, thanks! I see some now, wasn't sure of the year before. Eep, not a cheap book.

I'm suprised that Surfer book hasn't been reprinted again.  It looks like it's only been reprinted once in 1997, and the reprint is probably harder to find now than the original book.

Right Jason, that reprint is nowhere to be found. In English anyway.
