down Contributor Bio(s)
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 Captain America, the Young Allies, the Kid Commandos, Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter. 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, Omac and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
down Quotes/Reviews
"Future generations will come to see Kirby as an exciting myth-maker whose message was life-affirming."-LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Kirby's work looks even bolder and crazier now than it must have at the time. The combination of science-fiction concepts and psychedelic philosophizing is the work of a man on the far side of middle age (Kirby was 53 when he began it), nurturing an odd faith that the wildly attired younger generation marching in the streets could set the world aright. Grade: A."-THE ONION on JACK KIRBY'S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 1
