It would be Jack Kirby’s 99th Birthday today (Sunday) if he were still around.  He’s not, but his artwork and storytelling live on.  I was never a big fan of Kirby as a kid, honestly.  Mostly because all I really saw was his later DC work which I did not, and still do not, care for.  However as I got older I started discovering his Marvel work, especially his work on Fantastic Four, and I started to GET it.

Still not a fan of his DC work overall, but I do dig his Marvel work.  And of course, the first comic I remember reading was, naturally, a Jack Kirby production:  Eternals #14.  Written and illustrated by The King, and even featuring a robot Hulk for good measure.

Not a bad way to get hooked on comics.
