Kirby: King of Comics


Kirby: King of Comics by Mark Evanier: Unlike previous biographic attempts, Kirby: King of Comics provides some real insights into the man's history, family and legendary career. Beyond the prerequisite reprintings of various pages and cover, Kirby's original pages are shown in all their (sometimes imperfect) glory. Various sketches throughout his life display a curiosity and warmth not often seen in his comics. His rough drawings for "Street Code", a ten-page tale for Argosy magazine, is drawn directly from his experiences growing up in New York. At a sizable 224 pages (most of them color), this book is long overdue. See today's posts or more Kirby issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
