All Hail The King! The New York Times Recognizes Jack Kirby

Today The New York Times finally paid homage to Jack Kirby, recognizing him as the artist that created so many of the characters that are bursting their way through Hollywood.

I’ve always thought that Stan Lee took too much credit for the work he and Kirby did at Marvel in the early days. Kirby drove a lot of the storytelling and I shouldn’t need to explain how much of an influence he was artistically.
