Happy Birthday Kirby!

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!


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!

    I was leaning toward Blastor until I Googled it and found out that’s already a Biowarrior AND a hip hop artist. D’oh!

    So the winner is…….

    Joseph with his entry, “Lantern-Head!” It’s straight and to the point (like “The Silver Surfer”) and I think it fits well! Your prize will be on it’s way soon Joseph!

    Thanks to everyone who gave a suggestion… good stuff all around!

    Thank you! And thank you for ‘Lantern-Head’, pondering him and the king truly made my morning last August. Today I think, what a perfect autumnal villain. I could see him bursting from a stack of Jack-O-Lanterns with panache.
