Jack Kirby Collages

Every once in a while, the great Jack Kirby would grace one of his comics pages with a handmade collage of his own design. They didn't print all that well because of the technology available at the time, but I have come to appreciate them greatly in retrospect. I have bid on two of the originals that showed up on ebay the last couple of years and I came thisclose to winning one of them. (Here is a look at one of the collage originals that I found over on

Mark Evanier has brought to my attention a dissertation by Steven Brower that extensively examines the wonder of the Kirby collages. You can enjoy that treatise over here.
