Happy Jack Kirby Day
As comics historian Mark Evanier notes in his wonderful blog newsfromme.com, today would have been Jack "King" Kirby's 89th birthday. As tribute to one of the, if not most, influential creators in the history of comics, I thought I'd post one of my favorite Kirby covers from what I consider his best work for Marvel in the 60's. The fantasy and cosmic wonderment of the Norse gods fit him to a T. I'm sad to say I never got to meet him but his work will live on forever. So break out a Thor or Fantastic Four or Captain America or New Gods today to celebrate the King Of Comics.
