It’s no-holds barred as issue #24 spotlights KIRBY’S GREATEST BATTLES! For starters, MIKE (Hellboy) MIGNOLA inks an unpublished epic Kirby battle scene for our FULL-COLOR, WRAP-AROUND COVER! Inside, you’ll find a hard-hitting interview with the champ himself, JACK KIRBY! Then we come out swinging with a discussion of Jack’s fight to get his original art back from Marvel Comics, including a new interview with the always-controversial JIM SHOOTER! Also, there’s a detailed analysis of our favorite Kirby battle story (featuring Jack’s uninked pencils), plus the fourth in our series of articles comparing Kirby’s margin notes to STAN LEE’s DIALOGUE! And throughout, we’ll showcase plenty of rare and unpublished art from some of Kirby’s greatest fight scenes, including knockout pages from THOR, NEW GODS, THE LOSERS, SUPER POWERS, and more!
