Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including SANDMAN, THE NEWSBOY LEGION and MANHUNTER, and for Marvel including CAPTAIN AMERICA, THE YOUNG ALLIES and the KID COMMANDOS. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including FIGHTING AMERICAN, BOYS' RANCH and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's FANTASTIC FOUR cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including INCREDIBLE HULK, AVENGERS and X-MEN. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic FOURTH WORLD TRILOGY, which was followed by THE DEMON and KAMANDI. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.From Booklist:
When Kirby’s ambitious Fourth World saga failed to be the blockbuster DC envisioned when they hired the comics legend away from Marvel in the early 1970s, the company asked him to come up with some nonsuperhero concepts. Among his proposals was one about a demon from hell named Etrigan, who is bound to a reluctant human host, Jason Blood. The Demon’s horror-comics roots were somewhat afield from the costumed crime fighters that were Kirby’s forte, although it harkened back to the monster comics he drew at Marvel before reviving the superhero genre with Fantastic Four, and Etrigan did possess powers including superhuman strength and magical abilities. Kirby’s over-the-top story lines, overwrought dialogue, and, above all, singularly dynamic artwork placed The Demon more in line with his larger-than-life superhero epics than with, say, the moody EC horror stories of two decades earlier. Although Kirby’s original series ran for only the 16 issues collected here, Etrigan remains a popular supporting character in the DC Universe, even appearing in Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. --Gordon Flagg
