Excellent 1987 Jack Kirby Interview

Author Barry Pearl has unearthed a radio interview with Jack Kirby from 1987 that is very interesting. Broadcast live on Mr. Kirby's 70th birthday, Stan Lee called in during the second half and joined right in on the festivities.  The interviewer asked what the two gentlemen were liking in then-current comics, and the answer included Watchmen and The Dark Knight and The Nam. Near the very end of the interview there was just a little bit of a (gulp) dust-up between the two creators on the matter of writing credits for stories they had collaborated on.

A tip of the hayfamzone helmet to Mr. Pearl for finding this transcript (and audio) which you can read (or listen to) over here.
