Today is Jack “King” Kirby’s 99th birthday! Even though he died back in 1994, his creations are loved today as much as ever. I dare say I couldn’t go an entire day without seeing his artwork or one of his creations, even if I didn’t have one tattooed on my body.

He changed the world of comics, and he certainly changed the world.

So here’s my Kirby version of a self portrait. Happy birthday, Jack!

Today would have been Jack Kirby’s 98th birthday! I created this character inspired by all the insano awesome things I love about Jack’s artwork. Happy 98th to the King!

Also…
CONTEST!

If you can think of a good name for this guy leave it in the comments. I’ll give a comic book featuring Jack Kirby artwork to the person who comes up with what I deem the best one!

Fantastic Four #9 Project

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

After nine years of commissioning cartoonists from all over North America to recreate a page from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four #9… it is finished!

Each page is redrawn by a different artist who put their own take on the original and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s truly a thing to behold! Just check out the beautiful cover by Nate Mcdonough!

Interior artists include Eric Shonborn, Avery Wynings, Chris Hoium, Christopher Mundy, Justin Wasson, Jeff Potter, Kevin Harris, Pat Kain, Kurt Dinse, Carrie McNinch, Jeffrey Brown, Noah Van Sciver, Jim Woodring, Anthony Vukojevich, Chester Brown, James Kochalka, Tom Williams, Nate Powell, Ron Rege jr, Dustin Harbin, Josue Menjivar and Brandon Graham!

It isn’t for sale, but if you stop by my table at S.P.A.C.E. (ths Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) on July 11th or 12th in Columbus I’d be happy to give you a free copy.

Six of the artists will be attending the show so you could totally get your copy autographed!
