This year would have been Jack Kirby’s 105th birthday! We hope you’ve seen some of the fun tweets folks have shared on Twitter with the hashtags #JackKirby105 and #JackKirbyMonth!
Since we’re getting closer to the “celebration weekend” of 27 and 28 August, we thought it best to share some of what we’ve got in the works!
Join us as we take a look at some of the Kirby homes in the NYC metropolitan area! On Saturday, we’re planning to visit Nassau County and Brooklyn! This will be a driving stream, with Rand Hoppe and Tom Kraft – and possibly some special guests – in Tom’s car.
Then, late Sunday afternoon, we’ll reprise our Jack Kirby Lower East Side Walking Tour, where you can join as online or in person! We’ll have guests, trivia questions, and, as is becoming tradition, a live dramatic reading of “Street Code,” and possibly more!
We also hope to kick off “Kamandi, the Last Kirby at DC in the 1970s Livestream Series!”
We’ll be sharing links as the schedule firms up. We hope you can join us!
