From Booklist:

This lavish, tabloid-sized tribute to one of comics’ great innovators, cocreator of the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, doubles as the fiftieth issue of Jack Kirby Collector, a labor-of-love magazine devoted to the artist, whose career spanned 50 years. To constitute a milestone, the contributors have chosen a half-hundred of Kirby’s best in four categories, that is, 50 foremost stories, covers, unpublished artwork, and character designs. There are also 50 artists’ and authors’ testimonials to Kirby’s influence and 50 pages of samples of Kirby’s pencil originals, which the oversize pages show off to full advantage. Perhaps the volume of heartfelt praise of Kirby by his acolytes becomes exhausting, just like reading too many of the artist’s action-packed pages; but if anyone in comics deserves such effusiveness, it’s the man who pretty much created the superhero genre as we know it today. Libraries in which Mark Evanier’s biography, Kirby: King of Comics (2008), attracts attention should definitely consider this book, not to mention the five volumes of The Collected Jack Kirby Collector. --Gordon Flagg
