Erik Larsen & Steve Coates made Calgary Expo a success

Another quick update to thank Kirby fan extraordinaire Steve Coates, who has supported the Kirby Museum’s appearances at the Calgary Expo for three years now, and powerhouse comic book cartoonist Erik Larsen for making this year’s Calgary Expo a resounding success.

In addition to drawing commissions for his many fans, Erik produced a special Kirby tribute print for the show. We have some signed prints available. Thanks Erik!

Steve, on the other hand, produced slideshows of Kirby covers and spreads, and had them both running during the whole show. Steve also offered buttons, covers and spreads that were “saved” from Kirby comics in the dollar bin. There was also a Kirby tribute panel on Sunday, with Erik, Tim Lasiuta, Michael Cho (a contributor to Jason Garrattley’s Kirby-Vision blog), Kyle Stevens from the nerd rock band Kirby Krackle, and me, Rand.

 

Hoboken Library Hails Jack Kirby!

Just  a quick note to thank the Hoboken Public Library for inviting me to offer a presentation about Jack Kirby last month. Matt Latham and his team were a pleasure to work with. The event was well attended, approximately 40 people, including 10 kids!

Would your organization like to sponsor a  talk or presentation about Jack Kirby? Contact us!

Special thanks to Raymond Smith for taking the photos.
