Jack Kirby is the legendary icon responsible for bringing to life, the modern day superhero.
His work from the 40's through to his death in the early 90's, didnt just help shape the way in which comic art is seen today, but practically changed the whole world with his dynamic visionary style.
He invented sometimes with his co-conspirator Stan Lee, the Fantastic Four, the original X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom, Galactus, Uatu the Watcher, Magneto, Ego the Living Planet, the Inhumans and their hidden city of Attilan, and the Black Panther — comics' first known black superhero — and his African nation of Wakanda. Plus a whole other universe of colourful fantasy wonder like the New Gods, Mister Miracle, and The Forever People.
The list of iconic characters is endless and it'sa real shame that the whole world knows them all by sight but may not know the genius who brought them to life. Marvel Comics is known as 'the house that Jack built' because of his amazing legacy.
This show is our tribute to the king with several incredible internationally renowned artists showing how the king Kirby influenced their lives!
