Jack Kirby’s 98th Birthday

A tribute to Jack “the King” Kirby and his art

Jack Kirby’s 98th birthday was a big reason to collaborate for the first time with The Kirby Museum, through its page Kirby Vision, which celebrates Jack Kirby’s art with contributions from a great group of fans.

I used as a reference the comic book covers Marvel published in the sixties and seventies, and created a new cover with the most charismatic characters associated with Jack Kirby’s Marvel period: the Fantastic Four and, as a fifth “non-official” member, Silver Surfer. They come out of one of Kirby’s pages to say “Happy Birthday Jack!”
