100 Days Of The King - Day 1


Today kicks off a new daily feature (hopefully) here at the Dojo. Don't expect a lot of gab in these "100 Days of The King" posts, but do expect to see some staggeringly exquisite Jack Kirby artwork as we march proudly to the "King's" one hundredth birthday exactly one hundred days from now. It begins here and now with this delightful self-portrait of Jack Kirby (with Vince Colletta inks) done as a lead in of sorts for the reprints which populated the "Fourth World" books when DC jumped to a twenty-five cent price for a while. Aside from some Cap stories in Fantasy Masterpieces these reprints were my first glimpse of vintage Simon and Kirby. Sandman, Manhunter, Newsboy Legion, and Boy Commandos -- all were fantastic!

    1. Should be fun. It's a chance to highlight some of the more offbeat Kirby stuff and some of my favorite pages as well. So much to choose from.
