- Full Description
Kirby's art in a new and unprecedented way, side-by-side examples of his work, on the left the original pencils, on the right after inking! Three Key first issues are showcased: The Demon #1, Kamandi #1 and Omac #1, along with a number of additional works. This is a perfect way to see Kirby art in its rawest form, reproduced from the original pencils as each page was completed, then next to it, the finished inks. "We would almost call this a textbook of comic art except it's too much fun!"
Includes a special fold-out page. The story is Jack actually drew one too many pages, so here are the TWO pencilled pages, which were then cut apart and reformatted into just one page, and then inked and reproduced. Here's that previously unseen, complete artwork in pencil form. In all, amost 80 pages in both forms.
Jack Kirby has been called the King of Comics, and rightfully so. For more than 40 years he was the most vital and groundbreaking artist in the medium. There have been dozens of books on Kirby over the years, including several oversized Artist's Editions showcasing his original art.
Includes photos of Jack at work, a short bio, a new 2016 introduction by his inker Mike Royer. When Kirby moved from New York to California, he wanted an inker who was close by that he could work with, maintaining control over how his work would be presented. Artist Alex Toth suggested Mike Royer...and the rest, as they say, is history.
Finally, a special message from the new Jack Kirby Museum. "From 1971 through the eighties, nearly every page of Kirby pencil art was photocopied and stored in manila envelopes and stored on a shelf in his studio."
