Jack Kirby Month by Month

What a great idea!

Wouldn't you like to know exactly what stories Jack Kirby drew for which four different companies in September of 1957? You can!

A gent named Ray Owens has compiled a month-by-month list of all the comics stories drawn by Mr. Kirby from 1938 through 1995. I find it fascinating and you can inspect it for yourself over here.

By the way, Jack Kirby never drew My Little Pony in any month.

Hi again:

I am glad you referred to that site, that is an incredible amount of research.

From the research I have for my book I have this: “In 1964, Jack drew 12 classic issues of THE FANTASTIC FOUR, a 48 page annual, eight issues of THE AVENGERS, six issues of X Men, 178 pages of Thor, 25 for TALES OF ASGARD, three 10-page stories for CAPTAIN AMERICA, five issues of Sergeant Fury, over a hundred covers and a heap of extra images for promotion. About 1,100 pages total.” That’s over 40% of the 2,650 of MARVEL’s (serious) comic production. Stan Lee wrote about 2,300 of those pages.”


On another topic (I could not find an email address), I’d like to update and expand a bit my post on being “unKirby” which you so nicely contributed too. May I use your post and do you want to add to it for the “original” new blog I’ll put up? Let me know.
