It’s always a joy to find new work from Marc Basile in the Kirby-Vision inbox. This time around Marc has created a series of pin-ups for a fantasy King Size Annual featuring reprints of Jack’s monster creations from the fondly remembered Atlas anthologies.

Rand Hoppe, museum trustee, will be in Calgary for the event.”
