Happy Birthday to the King

Jack (KING) Kirby’s 95th Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Well, those of you that know me will by now know that Jack Kirby was a massive influence on my becoming a comic creator and so like most years here is a commemorative Blog to celebrate what would have been his 95th Birthday.

As I worked on the pencils for Worlds End Volume 2 and the Worlds End colouring book today I thought about Jack's work a lot.

The master universe creator in the comic book form, who knows what wonders he would be creating today with the advent of the digital age?

I would like to share a little video created by his youngest Granddaughter, Jillian. Simply click on the picture to be redirected to YouTube to view the video.

Please feel free to pass on the message and give her your support.

All that remains is to raise a glass to the heavens, this bright sunny evening (somewhat of a rarity this year in this neck of the woods) and to say thanks for all the wonderful stories and art once again, Jack and I hope you are having a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, in which ever universe you are looking down from.

Until next time, have fun!

He once said in an interview that he'd figured out a way to survive death (cloning perhaps?) and return to this earthly sphere. Maybe he'll surprise us one day.

Hi Gordon,

Thanks for dropping by.

Wouldn't that be cool, mate?!

I guess if anyone could have imagined that one, it would have had to have been Jack.

Best Wishes,
