what do you think? Maybe an elderly Kirby?

I would be concerned with this autograph.
Much of the Kirby autograph traits are in this signature; but it seems really forced and jagged.
Dunno - but whenever I'm in the "dunno" category, I avoid.

Well, the J looks legit, being that it is signed on a small portion on the comic inner page panel. Looks legit but I'm with @Nuffsaid111 - its hard to be sure on this one.

looks real to me but unsure if it'd pass VSP for @Nuffsaid111 reasoning.

I have several and it looks to be consistent with the ones I have.

is there any way you can upload something close?

I sent it into an online authenticator for a quick opinion- he doesnt think its legit....heres his note:

It does differ somewhat from known exemplars, and it also appears it was signed with pauses in the signature that allowed the ink to bleed a bit where it shouldn't.

Seem like the concensus is not the real thing- just wonder if the sig is inconsistent with the others since it was a thin space and being the artist that he is, didn’t want to go above the line...and he was more elderly so his hand was shakey.

We all know how stand sig changed over the years...Wonder if Kirby’s did too? Is there any elderly Kirby examples out there? All these look younger.

@ozonetv I don't know man, after sleeping on it & looking at it again this morning, it looks legit to me. But that's just my personal opinion.

It looks real to me too just not sure it would get the red label at CBCS.

Here's an old one I purchased from Mike Royer.
