Here’s a guest post from author, publisher and Kirby Historian Kenn Thomas:
Tom Scioli, who did the very Kirby-inspired Godland series with Ben Ten co-creator Joe Casey, took over the art on Captain America Hail Hydra with the second issue, now on sale. The first issue was competently done but non-descript like most of Marvel’s corporate product. The second issue is remarkably distinct, however, a comic with some actual style. Scioli’s Kirby influence is as evident and oddly unique as ever, but it’s difference from standard fare makes it must see. Think of how Pat Boyette’s comics looked in the back drop of comics of their day. A too rare look at an artist with some stylistic cajones.
