The Fumetto International Comics Festival at Lucerne, Switzerland is mounting “Jack Kirby: The House That Jack Built”, the first major retrospective of original art by Jack Kirby. Over 150 works spanning from 1942 to 1985 will be on display from 1-9 May. Included will be all but two pages from “Whosoever Finds The Evil Eye!” (1966, Fantastic Four 54), the seven page “City of Ghouls!” (1954, Fighting American 2), the 22 page “Flower” (1973, Kamandi 6), the cover and 16 pages for “Good-Bye Broadway, Hello Death!” (1975, Our Fighting Forces 156) as well as rare sketches and key pages from throughout Kirby’s career.
Among those lending pieces from their collections are Kirby Museum members Tom Morehouse, Tom Kraft and Jonathan Ross.
The Kirby Museum is a proud supporter of Fumetto’s exhibit.
