Pg. 13; "No One Can Stop the Vanisher" Jack Kirby pencils, Paul Reinman inks; 1963; 13.5" x 20"
Jon Berk Collection

X-Men #2 features the tale "No One Can Stop the Vanisher" during which the nascent team of mutant heroes, and their teacher, basically, stop the Vanisher. Don't be distracted by this obviously misleading story title and instead, concentrate on the fact that this page is from the second-ever issue of the X-Men, the comic that went on to launch myriad heroes, and an incredibly successful film franchise to boot. Jack Kirby is once again the man behind the pencil, as he, along with writer Stan Lee, launch another of their lasting pop-cultural icons upon an unsuspecting world. This is a true treasure of comicbook art, one which is sure to thrill both X-fans and Marvel collectors. ÿýÿýÿýÿý

Artist Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of the most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
