About the Author
A true giant in the world of comics, Jack "The King" Kirby began his comics career in 1937 at the age of 20. During comics' Golden Age, Kirby (along with his partner Joe Simon) drew and/or created innumerable features, including Captain America, the Young Allies, the Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter. During the 1950s, Kirby and Simon continued to pour out stories and concepts, including The Fighting American for Crestwood and Boys' Ranch for Harvey, as well as creating the romance comics genre with their groundbreaking title Young Romance for Prize Comics. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel Comics' The Fantastic Four--a collaboration between Kirby and Marvel editor-in-chief Stan Lee--cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator. Throughout the 1960s, Kirby and Lee laid the groundwork for the Marvel Universe that flourishes to this day. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy"--THE NEW GODS, MISTER MIRACLE and THE FOREVER PEOPLE--which was followed by THE DEMON, OMAC and KAMANDI. After a brief return to Marvel in the mid-1970s (during which time he created the Eternals), Kirby shifted his attention to the animation industry, where he worked until his retirement in 1987. That same year he joined Will Eisner and Carl Barks as the first inductees into the Eisner Awards Hall of Fame. Jack Kirby passed away in 1994.
