I was Googling Jack Kirby this morning for an upcoming semi-regular feature here at Cheese Magnet, and man oh man!
I mean, I grew up on Kirby’s comics and he’s my all-time favorite comic book artist, but whenever I go back and look at his stuff when I’ve been away from it for awhile, it never fails to knock me right on my ass all over again.
Even on pages that are mostly talking heads, it’s like you’re staring at something from another planet.
Looking at this stuff makes me wish I were 12 years old again and on my way to Don’s Bookstore for the weekly comics-buying trip with my dad.
Jack “King” Kirby, we here at Cheese Magnet salute you!
