Jack Kirby's Galaxy Tripping Cover for Iron Man 80

Jack Kirby did one of my favorite Iron Man covers for issue #80.  Inked by Al Milgrom, I think this image was used on merchandising.

Iron Man 80 cover by Jack Kirby

Why do I think this is such a great cover?  It has no action, fighting, or drama of any kind.  Shell-head even has the helmet with the nose.

I admire it because it puts the Armored Avenger in a trippy outer-space setting, something Kirby excelled at drawing.  We had seen Iron Man in a couple of intergalactic fights before this, most notably during the Kree-Skrull War, when he was tearing into spaceships.  Kirby brought back the vision that Tony Stark's armor could take him anywhere in the galaxy.  Nuff Said!
