This Blog Wants You

No new posts this week as Kirby-Vision takes a short break, so here’s a reminder of our call for contributions for our annual Jack Kirby birthday portrait gallery.

Sunday 28th August marks the 94th anniversary of the birth of Jack Kirby. To celebrate the occasion, Kirby-Vision would like to invite all of our readers to send in their portraits of ‘The King of Comics’.

You can find our previous galleries here and here, both of which were a great success. We’re looking forward to seeing what you can all come up with this year and if you can’t find the time to contribute, then please spread the word to any Kirby fans that you may know.

The deadline for inclusion is Friday 26th August. All submissions can be sent to the usual address, please mark your emails “Birthday”. Thank you.

to be continued…

Kirby-Vision will be taking a break for the next few weeks but fear not as we’ll be back in April with more of the same, so keep those submissions coming in to the usual address. Meanwhile here’s a couple of Kirby-related links to keep you going until we return.

Brendan Tobin and Pedro Delgaro‘s annual celebration one of Kirby’s most bizarre creations, March MODOK Madness, is currently in full swing with some equally bizarre fan-art posted daily.

25 writers & artists analyze Jack’s work panel-by-panel in a series of short articles entitled, Kirb Your Enthusiasm, at the Hilobrow website.

And don’t forget to check out the sterling work of my fellow bloggers here at The Kirby Museum. All of the blogs hosted here are listed on the left-hand side of the home page which you can access by clicking the Museum logo at the top of this page.

Happy Birthday Jack!

Today marks the 93rd anniversary of Jack Kirby‘s birth and to celebrate KIRBY-VISION proudly presents our second portrait gallery in honour of ‘The King of Comics’.
