Just seems plain UN-American not to have one.

For my birthday im getting "Jack Kirby's fourth world" and im super excited about it (i turned 21 today). So i figured that we should have some place to talk about and remember Jack Kirby. any suggestions of anything written by him?

The man built the look of this industry there is nothing anyone can take away from Jack he is a legend and one of the greatest artists of all time.

I'm surprised this hasn't been done before. You'd think the King of Comics would get more respect

As influential as he was, I still can't stand his art

He helped bring back Captain America. That's enough for a respect tread in my book.

He also created him as well.

I respect the guy a lot because of how important he was to the comic book industry in it's early days but I can't help but think most of the people on here "love" him just because it's the popular thing to do.

I'm just saying that there are tons of people on here who praise the guy saying he's the one of the greatest of all time but most of them probably haven't read a single comic he's actually written or drawn. He definitely deserves all the praise he gets but need to understand why he's so praised instead of knowing it.

Sorry to @sog7dc for bringing a tad of negativity in here. I think it's great you made this thread.

Right, but even though his art in the older comics was good, I still prefer his newer work in Tales of Suspense and forward.

This fight in particular has stuck in my mind ever since I read it.

You can almost feel each punch that's being thrown.

I've read allot of comics he's drawn (One of my favorite Captain America artists), but none that he's written. Could you recommend any?
