Kirby Firsts (1971-1994)!
Jack Kirby left Marvel in 1971 when he was a man in middle age who was seeking a better situation for his talent to express itself and for he and his family to benefit financially from the fruits of that talent and his work. He at first found purchase at DC and stayed for five years launching many new concepts. He then returned to Marvel for a time, but soon left comics all together, but not really. He kept his hand in with new concepts for Indie publishers like Pacific and Eclipse. New number one issues appeared with Kirby artwork right up to the time of his passing in 1994. Here are are the covers of the many number one issues that Kirby had a hand in over that time from the Fourth World and beyond.
