On History: Kirby's Career

By | Tuesday, September 01, 2015 3 comments
At the opening of Comic Book Apocalypse: The Graphic World of Jack Kirby, curator Charles Hatfield was asked by a reporter to describe Kirby's career in seven words or less. Several folks made their own suggestions on Facebook, and I thought I'd share some of them here since they're all accurate...
"Stan Lee took all of the credit."

"That is a stupid question. You dork."

"Ripped the fabric of space and time."

"Tough Jewish street kid as cosmic visionary."
And my own personal favorite (because it's mine)...
Can you come up with anything better?

These are both 8 words, but I don't care; they're too good:

"Let me be Scott Free--and find myself!"
"Are you ready for the world that's coming?"

Is over-rated one word or two?
