Jeremy Kirby (Jack’s grandson) is Kickstarter funding a Coffee-Table sized book of Jack Kirby photos, art and a never before seen by the public 96 page play Jack wrote called “the frog prince”. For those poor souls ignorant of the great Jack Kirby here is a tiny over view:

Jack Kirby is arguably the greatest comic-book artist of all time. He co-created the Marvel Universe…here is a partial list of characters: Thor, the Fantastic Four, Captain America, Silver Surfer, Dr.Doom, the Hulk, the original X-Men & Galactus. On his own and with other companies he did these (among others) – Kamandi, New Gods, Forever People, Mister Miracle & Captain Victory. He also designed (and did much of the art I believe) for the Thundarr the Barbarian cartoon.

As a life long fan of the man’s work I am absolutely getting in on the Kickstarter for this…at least at the $50.00 level.
