Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby! ~~ A "Comical Wednesday" Post

Jack Kirby, one of comic books' true gods, would have been 96 years old today, if he hadn't left us back in 1994. But the amazing artwork the man gave us will be ours forever.

I'm going to shut up in a minute and just throw a random sampling of stuff at you, fellow babies... "Stuff" from the King. "Stuff" that shows the power in the man's work. And forgive me if I've left out some -- or all -- of your favorite characters! The man created, co-created, and/or illustrated thousands!



















Thanks for your time!

  1. There is something about the layout of the various illustrations that seems to draw you in.

    Love,

  5. Great stuff here! I love Kirby's work. His Krackle, and everything that comes with it. Miracle Man is one of my faves. Oh, and that Thing panel at the beginning of the post, is one of my all-time fave Kirby's.

    I'll be seeing you in the A to Z Challenge. Check me out: All Things Kevyn.
