Rare 1940's Kirby Cover


At left is the cover of YOUNG ALLIES # 1. Below is a house ad for this same book that appeared earlier in HUMAN TORCH # 5. Note the completely different cover that seems to be by Jack Kirby (who's listed as art director in the actual book and drew the first page of each chapter). Even the ad seems to be signed "Kirby" inthe lower right hand corner in spite of the fact that the drawn in figures don't look all that much like his artwork. (As stated earlier, please pardon "Whitewash" in his historical context. They knew not what they were doing.)
