Jack Kirby pencils/D. Bruce Berry inks; page 15; 1975; image size 10" x 15"Great page from Kamandi, featuring the "mighty One" who believes he's the reincarnated Superman. In this page Kamandi tests whether or not he's "faster than a speeding bullet" by having an ape fire a Gatling gun at him, because of course he does. Beautiful page with dynamic Kirby energy. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition.
Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of 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.
