Tom Kraft, Museum Trustee and WhatIfKirby.com genius, and I will be attending the Hawthorne High School Comic Convention in Hawthorne, New Jersey this Saturday.
We’ll have a table with a small Kirby display, some membership premiums, and a scanner. At noon, I’ll be talking about “The Jack Kirby Legacy” in a classroom down the hall.
The convention is a fund-raiser for the school’s Cartooning and Art Clubs, and admission is $4.

The Kirby Museum will be at NYC’s MoCCA Festival this weekend – table D8. This year, we’re offering a pair of 11×14 prints called “Psychedelic Fliers.” As with the SPQR portfolio, I’m printing HP Vivera ink on 100% Cotton, 50lb Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper. A small first edition will be run and offered in an archival print sleeve as a membership premium. (The $ level has yet to be decided.) They’re beautiful!
