Monday, August 28th (yesterday) marked Jack “King” Kirby’s 100th birthday.
He isn’t still around to celebrate it, but we certainly have a tremendous body of work with which to celebrate his storytelling.
I had made a comment on social media, but he seems to have cast a large enough shadow across pop culture that people may well be celebrating his centennial all week.
Comic-con also has an impressive 60-page PDF of artwork and anecdotes about Kirby.
( I personally have a soft spot for Kamandi).
Finally, Jeet Heer has a great article in the New Republic about Kirby and his impact, which dwarfs his outsize artwork.
