I had hoped to write a few paragraphs about Jack Kirby—who would’ve turned 103 on Aug. 28, 2020. However deadlines and life have kept me from that and other things I was planning for this week. But if you Google “Jack Kirby” you’ll find hundreds of sites with tributes better than anything I could come up with about the man who has justifiably been called “the King” of comics.

Instead, I’m posting the first page of the Marvel story that my two-part Kirby/Colletta webcomics are pulled from. I don’t feel comfortable posting more than that. It’s copyright, of course, Marvel Comics and appears here only for promotional and informational purposes.
