It can be argued that Jack “the King” Kirby is one of the most influential pop culture artists of the 20th century. In that vein, Marvel published a large hardback volume celebrating the King. The book reprints the expected (Fantastic Four #48-51 with the first appearances of Galactus and the Silver Surfer. Arguably the finest work of Kirby's long career), historical (“Mercury in the 20th Century” from Red Raven Comics #1, August, 1940), the obscure (“I Defied Pildorr, The Plunderer from Outer Space”), and the ugly (pretty much anything inked by Chic Stone). Marvel could have picked some better 70s tales (like a Black Panther issue instead of a hideous Inhumans story), but as demonstrated in this collection no one does/did comics like Jack Kirby. The King is dead, long live the King! ( )
