Jack Kirby was the most important and influential artist in comics history. Besides Thor, he co-created most of the Marvel Universe, including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man,Iron Man, The Silver Surfer, and so many others. As writer, artist, innovator, his legacy is unparalleled. All the grandeur and energy that infused Kirby's artistry is evident herethis is the next best thing to looking over the masters shoulder at his drawing board!
All these complete stories in the ARTIST'S EDITION are scanned from original art to ensure the highest possible quality reproduction. While appearing to be in black and white, each page is scanned in colour to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art.
No wonder IDW have garnered five consecutive Eisner Awards for the Artist's Edition series.
I've had the great pleasure of working with one of the most creative men in comicsthe great Jack Kirby, whose magnificent artwork and wonderful story sense have rightly earned him the nickname King Kirby. He had the ability to take any theme and make it look spectacular due to the power and the brilliance of his artwork. If ever a writer had the perfect collaborator, I was lucky to have had the brilliant and inimitable Jack Kirby. Stan Lee
Jack Kirby is still the visual heart of the Marvel style, so having an opportunity to experience his originals at the size they were drawn, corrections and all, is a rare and valuable opportunity for any aficionado of the comic book mediums, Marvel SVP & Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
Without Jack Kirby, the comic books we know and love would not exist, said Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier, His work influenced and shaped the entire art form. Its as simple as that.Authors:
