Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including Captain America, the Young Allies, the Kid Commandos, Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boys' Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's Fantastic Four cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by The Demon, Omac and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.From Booklist:
The battle of new gods continues in the third roundup of comics-legend Kirby’s very eccentric Fourth World saga, which sprawled across four separate DC comic books in the 1970s. Vividly restored in the volumes of this series, Kirby’s creation exemplifies the comics at their busiest, with more action more colorfully splashed across the pages than seems possible. No artist drew more kinetic panels; few wrote stiffer, odder dialogue (amusing, though, like Monty Python or SCTV in epic-movie parody mode). But what’s with the Planet of the Apes mugs on everybody except Superman? --Ray Olson
