Jack ‘the King’ Kirby

Posted by | No Tags | Things we like

One of the most prolific and important creators in the world of comics is Jacob Kurtzberg, also known as Jack Kirby, the King of Comics. The writer/artist from New York, Kirby is responsible for a huge majority of the modern Marvel and DC superheroes and characters that we love, especially at Marvel where they’re still celebrating the success of the blockbuster film “The Avengers”, which was originally created by Kirby along with Stan Lee. Kirby’s art completely revolutionised comic book illustration and created such pop culture icons as Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Nick Fury, the X-men, Silver Surfer and the Fantastic Four. It’s almost impossible not to find yourself a fan of his work and influence due to the sheer creative output he was capable of.
