I am trying to post at least once per day. Today…
Don’t really have anything so we are going to do a throw back.
I am trying to keep my posts to the general end of the world theme…
This is a piece of art I did way back when I first started drawing again. It is a sketch card of my favorite Jack Kirby comic. Kamandi #1.
Eternals #8 was one of the comics in the first stack of comics I ever owned.
Recently saw the pencils show up on a ton of Tumblr pages.
Figured I would post them up as one last Kirby post for his Birthday.
If I had to pick a favorite comic series, it of course would be the Hulk. Coming in a close second though would be Jack Kirby’s end of the world comic Kamandi!
When I first started drawing again a number of years back one of the first things that I did was try my hand at recreating a Kirby cover from Kamandi.
Thought his Birthday would be a good day to re-post of that sketchcard image.
One of the biggest names in comics, creator of a large corner of the Marvel Comics Universe, as well as his fair share of books over at DC.
He would have been 96 years old today.
Happy Birthday Mr. Kirby.
Mr. Kirby is one of my favorite artist and creators. Two of my favorite comics of all time Eternals at Marvel and Kamandi from DC are creations of his. Would have loved to have had the chance to have met him before he passed.
