One Hundred Comic Creators Celebrate A Master In Kirby 100

by Hannah Means Shannon

Publisher TwoMorrows are celebrating Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday in fine style by publishing a new tribute comic art book where 100 comic creators pay homage to the King in Kirby 100.

In this 224 page full color paperback book, edited by John Morrow and Jon B. Cooke, comic professionals get down to brass tacks about Kirby’s 50 years working in comics, looking into his page layouts, storytelling abilities, and also speaking about their favorite panels and characters.

Just a few of the comic pros who take part are: Bruce Timm, Alex Ross, Drew Friedman, Walter Simonson, John Byrne, Joe Sinnott, Steve Rude, Adam Hughes, Wendy Pini, John Romita Sr., Dave Gibbons, P. Craig Russell, and “dozens more”.

The Kirby cover of the book is inked by Mike Royer.
