Today marks the 95th anniversary of Jack Kirby’s birth and to celebrate KIRBY-VISION proudly presents our annual portrait gallery in honour of ‘The King of Comics’.
Rob’s source material for his portrait comes from an unpublished Machine Man page (click to enlarge). Rob writes, “The character in the 3rd panel is Dr. Peter Spalding. I thought he looked a little like Jack with his pipe so I added inks.”
(You can see the original Kirby/John Verpoorten cover to The Eternals #9 here)
A huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s Birthday celebration. And of course a huge thank you to Jack Kirby for his continuing inspiration. Long live The King!

A big welcome to these pages to fellow Kirby Museum blogger, Robert Steibel, who presents two pieces of Kirby inspired art for your viewing pleasure. First up is an original character, Mercuri. Created in Gimp and utilising Kirby’s trademark visual dynamics, Robert describes Mercuri as a “kick-ass, female version of Jack’s Silver Surfer.”
Secondly, Robert inks and colours Jack’s pencils of Guilotina, a sketch produced for the unrealised project, Big Barda and her Female Furies.
Robert writes and draws the daily comic Apple Creek and you can see his other new comics projects like Wild Life at his blog, here. Last but not least, Robert writes the weblog, Kirby Dynamics for The Kirby Museum, which we recommend as an essential part of your daily Kirby intake.
