Happy Jack Kirby Day


The King would have been 94 years old today! I had planned on spending the day with him anyway as I'm proofing an upcoming book on him but I was heartened to see that many of my Internet friends and acquaintances chose to do so, also! The King may be gone but definitely not forgotten! Seen here is perhaps my favorite art of my all-time favorite superhero, Captain America. By Kirby, natch, from 1966, presumably inked by Don Heck as it resembles the famous "Gods" portraits that the two of them did around that time or soon afterwards.

Lovely artwork! And from 1966, of course! Thanks for sharing it with us, Steve.
