Marc Basile – ‘NUFF SAID!
Happy New Year, Kirby-fans, let’s kick off 2014 with a gallery of nefarious reprobates from the pen of Boston-based artist Chris Goodwin. Chris’ portfolio includes work for the video and role-playing games industries alongside private commissioned portraiture. He teaches painting at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. You can find more of his work at his website and Flickr photostream.
Drawing inspiration from fondly remembered Marvel Treasury Edition back covers, Marc Basile celebrates All Hallows’ Eve with a gruesome gathering of mischievous miscreants.
Today marks the 96th anniversary of Jack Kirby’s birth and to celebrate KIRBY-VISION proudly presents our annual portrait gallery in honour of ‘The King of Comics’.
Craig writes, “I’m more a writer than an artist, so I took one of my favorite pieces of Jack’s work and … well, rewrote it.” – Click Image to enlarge.
Also joining in the Birthday celebrations with non-portrait pieces:
And finally, Italian Renato Stevanato gifted not one but five portraits which will form part of his own celebratory post at his blog, cartoonstherapy.
A huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s Birthday celebration, making it our biggest portrait gallery ever. And of course a huge thank you goes out to Jack Kirby for his continuing inspiration. Long live The King!

All the photos are from the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. The Galactus Costumer photograph is from the 2012, but he was by the Jack Kirby Museum booth again this year. All the other photos were taken from the 2013 booth and are of attendees walking by. Except for the Captain America Costumer, he was invited into the booth, so the display posters could be used as a background.
It’s that time of year again and Kirby-Vision would like to wish each and everyone of our readers the very best for the holiday season. To celebrate here’s a fantastic piece from regular contributor Marc Basile who comments, “When I think of Christmas, I remember how much fun it was when I was a child. It just had a little extra sparkle back then! Here is a book I would’ve loved to have, if it were real.”
