An Unexpected Jack Kirby Connection

Bob Buethe was perusing our Jack Kirby on Long Island article from a few months back and, guess what? Bob says that his doctor's office is just five blocks away from Mr. Kirby's former New York home and that he will make a point of swinging past there in the future. I let Bob know that I would be delighted to publish a photo!

Then Bob rolled up his research sleeves and wrote in with the following:

Here's a bit of trivia I bet nobody noticed until now. Thanks to,, and Google, I just discovered that one of the current residents of that address is the older sister of an actor who had a small role in X-Men 2.

Nice investigating! Bob runs a blog of his own called Cartoonacy that you'll probably want to investigate for yourself.
