The Voice of Jack Kirby 1975

I have never (yet) attended the San Diego Comicon, but now both you and I can ride a time machine back to 1975 and pretend that we attended that year!

Alan Light, publisher and editor of The Buyer's Guide for Comic Fandom from its inception in 1972 until he sold it to  Krause Publications in 1983, made recordings of some great comics luminaries at the 1975 Comicon. Jack Kirby is in there, as are Stan Lee and Will Eisner and Jim Steranko and Jerry Siegel!

Fire up your Way-Back Machine and click right here to listen to the recordings. Enjoy!

Jack Kirby Is Coming to Free Comic Book Day!

May 2 will be Free Comic Book Day in 2020!

Some years I have no particular interest in any of the free comics but 2020 will not be one of those years. The life story of Jack Kirby in comic book form? I will be first in line for that doozy!

Here is the Free Comic Book Day website if you'd like more details.

Jack Kirby and the newest New God

Deathflash was to be a bounty hunter whose skill was to track down gods, but he never wound up making it into the New Gods series. This information comes courtesy of Jack Kirby's grandson Jeremy Kirby! Here is a photo of Mr. Jack Kirby unveiling his design for Deathflash.
