Issue #31 is the big one, sporting a new king-size Kirby format! It starts with a never-published wraparound Kirby cover featuring Superman, inked by the incomparable Neal Adams! Inside, JKC examines Kirby's biggest work, from his longest stories and most mind-blowing concepts, to his wildest two-page spreads! There's a colossal Kirby interview, plus new interviews with Kurt Busiek about his work on Jack's Secret City characters, and an artist who's made a big impression on Kirby fans, Jose Ladronn! To start the year off right, JKC explores Kirby's monolithic work on the 2001: A Space Odyssey and Bicentennial Battles Treasury Editions! Plus, Mike Gartland takes a look at Kirby's work on Giant-Man, and the new giant- size pages will show even more unpublished Kirby pencil art—at nearly actual size! So don't miss the only magazine big enough to contain the imagination of the king: Jack Kirby!
