Happy Birthday Jack Kirby4178

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
Today - August 28th 2017 - Jack Kirby would have celebrated his 100th birthday. In a month of D.C. and Marvel comics celebrating his life and works, today is the pinnacle of that celebration.

In honor of "the King" himself, let's see some of your favorite Kirby works. Doesn't matter if it's in your collection (although that would be awesome) or not just post us some great Kirby works!

At the risk of sounding self-promotional, here is an article I put together this morning:

Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby

This is one of my favorite full page Jack Kirby/Joe Sinnott panels. It is such a beautiful work of art and the sentiments of the Silver Surfer are timeless and ring true. Not only that, this panel is from the Fantastic Four #72, so it was probably created 50 years ago just about this time of year.
