DESCRIPTION
Pg. 30; Jack Kirby pencils, Bruce Berry inks; 15" x 21"

Hailing from Kirby's Fourth World creation Hunger Dogs, we have another brilliant piece launched from the incredible ingenuity of the world's jolliest comic creator, Mr. Jack Kirby! Grant Morrison once commented, "Kirby's dramas were staged across Jungian vistas of raw symbol and storm...The Fourth World saga crackles with the voltage of Jack Kirby's boundless imagination let loose onto paper." This page has all of that; a unique layout of panels sparkling with an energy that emanates from the page which is pure Kirby. Readers loved his skill for detail exemplified by the bizarre and futuristic machines sprinkled throughout his stories, for which "The King" often found inspiration by examining the guts of transistor radios.

Artists 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.
