No tax for Jack

Jack Kirby Museum director Rand Hoppe just called to tell me that the IRS finally approved the Museum’s 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status! What does this mean to you, the current or prospective Museum member? Not much directly, but it does mean the Museum doesn’t have to pay taxes on donations and fundraisers, so there’ll be that much more money available to put on displays.

Kirby Checklist corrections needed

We’re planning to do an updated “Gold” edition of the Jack Kirby Checklist for 2008, which will include all the additions and corrections we’ve received since we pubished the “Silver” edition back in 1998. So if you noticed something we missed, please email it to Richard Kolkman (who’s done such a great job keeping the checklist updated since he first re-compiled it a decade ago) at:

We particularly need listings of Kirby work that has been published since 1998, whether it’s a reprint, poster, trading cards, etc. So send ’em in soon, and thanks to everyone who’s helped out on this worthwhile project over the years.
