Look, it's Superman & The Challengers of the Unknown!
I always thought this was a great cover. It's right in your face! Supes is busting through the image... with the Challengers not far behind! Utilizing strong line work, movement, and a simple yet effective composition, it really has all the staples of a great Kirby comic book cover!
It's from 'DC Comics Presents' Vol. 1, issue 84. Published in August 1985, this anthology title brings back two comic book art legends to do the interior pencils; Alex Toth, and of course, The King himself!
Jack pencils the cover, pages 1 & 2, then pages 10 through 24. Toth pencils pages 3-9, and Greg Theakston inks the whole shebang. The title of the story is "Give Me Power... Give Me Your World!", and Bob Rozakis is the writer. Fandom gives this synopsis: "Zo-Mar, a Kryptonian criminal, escapes from a space-prison capsule and menaces Earth with a mystic card that negates his super-powers but gives him the power to control human minds--including those of Superman and the Challengers of the Unknown."
Aside from this great cover image (you don't see a Superman face by Kirby too often, as they were often redrawn by other artists to fit DC's standard "Superman look" early in Kirby's DC career), this book is noted as being Jack's last interior pencil work for DC Comics.
