Jack Kirby, PFC

Foxhole1

Jack Kirby’s time in military service during World War Two had a powerful effect on him, which was evident in his work. Over on Marvel.com, Neal Kirby shares some stories and photographs.

We’re set up at booth 5520 near aisle 1300, with T-shirts, prints, membership premiums, and a Kirby art exhibit of hi res prints of hi res scans.

Erik Larsen & Jack Kirby Museum at Calgary

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!

This Wednesday night “All Hail Jack Kirby, The King of Comics!” in Hoboken, New Jersey

I’ll be offering a presentation and discussion I’ve titled “All Hail Jack Kirby, The King of Comics!” at the Public Library here in Hoboken, NJ this Wednesday night at 6pm.

I’ll have some original materials and art from the Museum’s holdings.

Refreshments will be served!

The 2013 Convention Season begins! Here’s March…

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.

What!?? Happy New Year!?? C’mon…!

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.
