My Art – Jack Kirby Cover Recreation of Kamandi #1

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.

Happy 96th Birthday Jack Kirby

2012-08-27-jack_kirby_young-533x358Jack Kirby.

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.
