100 Days of Jack Kirby begins now!

The Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center is proud to announce the 100 Days of Kirby in honor of Jack’s approaching 100th birthday on August 28. Our Kirby centenary efforts will consist of live events, talks, parties, and a few surprises along the way.  We’ll be working with friends, members, and donors both in the United States and the international community to make Jack’s 100th birthday a global event.

As part of our Kirby 100 effort, we’re offering some exciting new donation rewards and membership options. Your donation will allow us to honor Jack Kirby the way he deserves, and help us to scale future efforts, both to celebrate Jack’s centenary and beyond. Your donations help support our ongoing efforts to scan, collect, and preserve Jack’s work for future generations. You’ll be able to see more of our scans and preservation efforts than ever before, as we open up our digital archives for viewing on social media over the next 100 days. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, like us on Facebook, and keep an eye on the front page of kirbymuseum.org for daily journeys into the life and work of one of the greatest artists of any medium the 20th Century produced.
