King Kirby!

Today is Jack Kirby's birthday.

Always keep in mind that Jack Kirby created most of what comic book fans call "the Marvel Universe". His editor did not create it. His editor did not write it. His editor deserves none of the credit, nor does that man deserve any of the monetary rewards that were robbed from Jack Kirby.

Jack Kirby: THE creator of Marvel's success.

Jacob Kurtzberg/Jack Kirby.
Ben Grimm, the most personal creation of Jack Kirby.

The Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, Ant Man: All solely created by Jack Kirby.

A stroke of genius from Jack Kirby: Reinterpret the mythological gods as superheroes!
