The art is by Jack Kirby with inks and colors by me. Kirby was my earliest artistic role model and never before has his influence on our culture been more profound. Beyond the comics page through film and television his archetypes, creations and co-creations have become our new mythology: the list is staggering: Captain America, the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Thor, the X-Men, the Silver Surfer, the New Gods, just to name a few.

There is a new book out by Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics, which I have reviewed for Print Magazine. This is a “coffee table” art book, with beautiful reproductions, from H.N. Abrams publisher.

  1. You know it’s funny. I had always felt that comics never really made a great impression on me when I was younger, but I really do appreciate them now.

    In fact, I’m beginning to notice that in some ways I really was influenced all along.
