And that's that. All year the Dojo has celebrated the career of the mighty "King of Comics", the awesome, the one and only Jack Kirby. I hope you've enjoyed it. I close out my year-long look at Kirby's career with this gallery of some of my favorite Kirby covers. We start with my all-time favorite cover above, the debut issue of New Gods. Next year, while I'll be attending to other matters and other creators, don't expect all sign of the King to disappear. He's too important to the fabric of the hobby to ever be ignored. But I do long to spend some time on other things, and am eager to get to things not quite so Kirby-riffically cosmic. It's been a bitter year in many respects (more on that tomorrow) but the daily doses of Kirby have been a wonderful balm in a time of profound grief. Ever onward, to the future, that was the Kirby way. The "King" is alas dead, but long live the "King"!
