The Jack Kirby Museum is proud to have participated in a new exhibit “Jack Kirby, le super-créateur” that is being shown at the 42nd Festival de la Bande Dessinée in Angoulême, France. Sponsored by 9eArt+ and Urban Comics, curators Frédéric Manzano and Jean Depelley have pulled together a wonderful selection of Kirby work, which includes almost 100 images from the Kirby Museum’s Original Art Digital Archive.
To celebrate this outstanding exhibit, the Kirby Museum’s Tom Kraft and Rand Hoppe will attend the festival. We understand there is going to be a Jack Kirby panel discussion. More news as it it comes in.
That’s right, the Jack Kirby Museum will be setting up something special at the Florida Supercon in Miami Beach from July 3rd through the 6th!

Steve Coates, along with Logan and Selena, put together a Jack Kirby Museum exhibit at the Calgary Expo. Steve reports there was considerable attention from guests and attendees, with new members signing up on the spot and many interested in supporting our efforts in the future.
Paul Kupperberg and Barry Kitson where scheduled to appear at the Expo and take part in Saturday’s Jack Kirby Tribute panel, but both had to postpone their appearance. Luckily and eagerly, Kevin Eastman and David Lloyd stepped in and appeared at the panel.
It was a busy four-day weekend, but Steve reports he was able to meet with some of the guest artists. Steve would like to say a big thank you to Scott Shaw! and Mark McKenna for their anecdotes and kindness. Also, a “Cowabunga!” to Kevin and Courtney Eastman for their support through a very busy weekend. Steve also expressed regret at not finding enough time to visit with David Lloyd.
Welcome aboard to the new museum members and a thank you to Logan and Selena Coates, Steve says he couldn’t do it without you! Another thank you to Lorraine, a volunteer who spent considerable time helping at the exhibit.
