Description:

Folio. Very fine in like jacket. Unread, as new. First edition / printing. From the publisher: "Jack Kirby created or co-created some of the most popular characters in American comics, including Captain America, the X-Men, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, the Mighty Thor, Darkseid, and the New Gods. More significantly, he created much of the visual language for fantasy and adventure comics; almost everything that was different about comic books began in the 1940s on the drawing table of Jack Kirby. This is his story, by his former assistant and official biographer, stuffed with hundreds of color reproductions of Kirby's published work, his paste-up inks, his pencil layouts, his sketches, and archival photos from throughout his career." 224pp. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Jack Kirby created or co-created some of comic books’ most popular characters including Captain America, The X-Men, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, The Mighty Thor, Darkseid, and The New Gods. More significantly, he created much of the visual language for fantasy and adventure comics. There were comics before Kirby, but for the most part their page layout, graphics, and visual dynamic aped what was being done in syndicated newspaper strips. Almost everything that was different about comic books began in the forties on the drawing table of Jack Kirby. This is his story by one who knew him well―the authorized celebration of the one and only “King of Comics” and his groundbreaking work.

“I don’t think it’s any accident that . . . the entire Marvel universe and the entire DC universe are all pinned or rooted on Kirby’s concepts.” ―Michael Chabon

About the Author: Mark Evanier met Jack Kirby in 1969, worked as his assistant, and later became his official biographer.

He has three Emmy Award nominations, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award for animation from the Writers Guild of America.
