Be sure to read Norris Burroughs’ “My Introduction to Kirby” on Kirby Kinetics and James Romberger’s “The Deceptions of Argo” on The Kirby Effect, There’s an awesome “Hulk Victorious” by MJ Macedo on Jason Garrattley’s KIRBY-VISION, too!
We’re thrilled to be at the Calgary Expo this weekend! Erik Larsen will be there, too, as our Special Guest. Erik has generously produced an exclusive 250 plate print, the proceeds of which will benefit the Kirby Museum. So if you’re going to Calgary, be sure to visit booth 1523-1524.
There will also be a Jack Kirby panel on Sunday, April 28th at 2:00pm in Palomino room H, with Erik, Michael Cho, Tim Lasiuta and more!
Certainly looking forward to seeing everyone at MoCCAFest this weekend in NYC!
We’re at table B62

In the coming weeks, the Kirby Museum will be attending:
The Comic Art Con, in Secaucus, NJ: 24 March. Tom Kraft will be scanning for our digital archive at Nostalgic Investments’ table.
WonderCon, in Anaheim, CA: 29-31 March. Rand Hoppe will be manning a Kirby Museum booth at #825. Tom Kraft will be scanning at Nostalgic Investments’ #412.
We wish we could be setting up at Asbury Park Comic Con, as we have in the past.
Just popping up to say that I’m in the midst of reworking the Museum’s website, which is why I haven’t posted in a while. I don’t want to add too much new content here. I have been contributing to the Museum’s Tumblr over at http://kirbymuseum.tumblr.com. The Museum blogs are still rockin’ away – see the list to the left on our home page – thanks to our wonderful volunteer bloggers Richard, Rob, Bob, Jason, and Norris. I’ve got a backlog, and some changes for The Kirby Effect in the works, too.
Thanks for all of your support! 2013 is looking to be a another great year for the Kirby Museum.
It’s been an honor to be hosting Harry Mendryk’s Simon & Kirby blog on the Kirby Museum’s site, so I’m sad to see that after more than six years and almost 700 entries, Harry posted his farewell today.
Thankfully, Harry has agreed to allow the blog to remain online. I know it is already a great resource, and expect it to remain so. If you haven’t visited, do it now!
Thanks again, Harry!
Yes, the Kirby Museum will have a table at the Comics & Graphics Festival in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York City on Saturday, 10 November.
You want Kirby books? We’ll have them. You want Kirby posters? We’ll have them, too. What else do you want? Limited Edition prints? Yeah, we’ll have them, and t-shirts, too.
It’s from noon until seven pm with free admission at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church.
