Jack Kirby's Orion Times Two

The inking credits of artist Gary Martin go all the way back to DC's great 'Mazing Man series in the mid-1980s and I thought everyone might like seeing two recent drawings by Mr. Martin of Jack Kirby's Orion of The New Gods. Enjoy!

Not Paul Levitz

Joseph Boardman, AMTRAK President and CEO

I thought it was great seeing Paul Levitz on c-span last week testifying before a congressional committee.

But then I read the bottom of the screen and found out it wasn't Paul Levitz at all, but rather Joseph Boardman.

Oh well.

Paul Levitz, comic book author

The Jack Kirby Pretzel

I have previous told you about a Jack Kirby statue and Jack Kirby beer. Of course the next step in that progression is for there to be a Jack Kirby pretzel. I'm not sure what took so long, but the pretzel has arrived.

And it looks delicious! I would eat one right now if I had it here with me. A cheesecake-flavored pretzel? Too much!

You can read a little more about Jack Kirby pretzels right over here. Hooray for Jack Kirby!
