I’m in a really good place (!) today, thanks to the arrival of my sample copy of the Limited Hardcover Edition of Jack Kirby Collector #80—the double-size “Old Gods & New” book! It traces Kirby’s use of mythological gods from his earliest 1940s work, through Thor, the New Gods, Eternals, and Captain Victory, before culminating with Hunger Dogs! If you’re a lifelong fan of the Fourth World like me, this is the book for you.
Along with Kirby & Lee: Stuf’ Said and Jack Kirby’s Dingbat Love, this is one of the three books I’m most proud of from my 25+ years as an author, editor, and publisher. See for yourself when it’s released on May 26! You can preview it and pre-order it HERE!
