King Kirby Kaleidoscope

I've known of the existence of King Kirby Kaleidoscope for a while now but bought it just recently. I am very pleased with my purchase!

Printed overseas, this book is a love letter to Jack Kirby from a number of European artists. I like the way they show the penciled version of a Kirby drawing side by side with an inked version of the same drawing. Isn't the above interpretation of OMAC by Ramon Bernado quite impressive? (Of course I've tried my own hand at inking Mr. Kirby, as I showed you back here.)

Some of the excellent artists represented in Kaleidoscope are Marcos Martin and Javier Pulido and Alvaro Lopez. I would encourage any Kirby fan to seek out this book!
