Fall 2005 - 80 pages - Tabloid Format
Mythadventures rule in JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR #44, focusing on KIRBY’S MYTHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS, including THE DEMON, THOR, ATLAS, ETERNALS, and others! There’s a rare interview with KIRBY, never-seen by most comics enthusiasts! MARK EVANIER answers Frequently Asked Questions about Jack in his regular column, while our other regular columnists give their take on all things Kirby! There’s also two Kirby pencil art galleries; one of THE DEMON, and another featuring some of his other classic mythological characters (both at whopping TABLOID SIZE)! Just in time for Halloween, there’s a never-reprinted BLACK MAGIC story from the 1950s! Also, we present an interview with Kirby Award winner and family friend DAVID SCHWARTZ (with tons of little known anecdotes and info about Jack and Roz), a new Kirby Demon cover inked by MATT WAGNER, and more! Edited by John Morrow.
(NOTE: We mistakenly included the Black Magic stories in TJKC #44 under the heading of "Public Domain Theatre". In actuality, the copyright on these stories is still valid, held initially by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, and later renewed by Joe Simon. We apologize for the misimpression that was conveyed. The copyright notice should have stated "Copyright Joe Simon & Jack Kirby.")
