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)...
PA-THOOM KRRAK!
Can you come up with anything better?

The one indispensable titan of comics creators.

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?
