    “Jack “King” Kirby (born Jacob Kurtzberg: August 28, 1917 – February 6, 1994) was an American comic book artist, writer, and editor, widely regarded as one of the medium’s major innovators and one of its most prolific and influential creators."

    Victory tastes like humiliation.

    I’m reading the 10th Anniversary Calvin and Hobbes and Watterson has lots to say about licensing. He had the clout to get his contract changed after years of battles because he didn’t want Calvin on underwear.

    And THIS is why I have no respect for (hawk, spit) Stan Lee. RIP, Jack Kirby.

    In “Fantastic Four” #511, the heroes went to heaven and met God, and he was in fact Jack Kirby. Wonderful script by Mark Waid. Google it to see some of the images.

    Nice comic, but I’m a little disappointed that Ruben didn’t at least try to emulate the distinctive Kirby inking style. (Panel 6 looks like there may have been some thoughts about attempting this)

    He needed to team up with Siegel and Shuster.

    This cartoon was overtaken by events. The Kirby heirs appealed the ruling, and just before the US Supreme Court was set to consider their appeal, Disney settled for a whopping sum and creator credits. It wasn’t at all altruistic, of course, but it’s also said to be the largest settlement or award won by a comics creator.
