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!
