Jack Kirby, whose career stretched from the early 1940s co-creation of Captain America to 1980s work in animation, has been called the most influential comic-book artist of all time. The Jack Kirby Collector, a magazine devoted entirely to documenting and celebrating his work, won't argue the point. The fourth collection of reprints from the zine contains critiques of his stories, minute examinations of his drawing style, and interviews with artists who collaborated with or were influenced by him as well as with Kirby himself. Though Kirby is best known for his superheroes, such as the Fantastic Four and the Hulk, many articles examine his work in other genres, including horror, crime, Westerns, and even love comics. Virtually every page features artwork, often in original, uninked pencil form; there's plenty to choose from, for Kirby drew some 25,000 pages. The Kirby Collector may strike nonfans as bordering on the obsessive. But if anyone in comics warrants such detailed coverage, it's Kirby, who towers over other superhero artists like one of the intergalactic gods he depicted. Gordon Flagg
