    My God, Jack Kirby

    That tears it, I have to do a Jack Kirby thread.


    Everyone's talking about Deadman's unchanging, simple costume. His costume is one of my favorites...I got some beat up old Neal Adams Deadman as a kid and loved it...so it blew my mind later when I finally tracked down a bunch of Forever People, in a tiny used bookstore in Provo, Utah (no ebay back then, yo)...and for the first time I saw Jack Kirby doing Deadman.
    So I just used Internet to look for some pictures from that issue...






    But even long dead, if you go looking for a tiny piece of Jack Kirby, you may end up subsumed in a whirlpool of colorful excitement and captivating craziness you never could have foreseen...'cause I bumped into other stuff and ended up more interested in the fact that, thanks to the observations of cartoonist Jim Rugg, Rainn Wilson should play Captain Victory.








    and then I ended up reminded that Jack Kirby already invented Motion Capture back in the 70's.




    So good. We just want to come before you now, Jack Kirby, and just praise you, Jack Kirby, and we just ask that you would come back to Earth soon, Jack Kirby...in the name of Jack Kirby, amen.

    I always LOVED the way some of his shadows look like siamese twin sperm, like on that first Deadman's thigh. No joke, I love them, the placements are always perfect.

    Isn't that Mister Miracle MoCap more like Disney's animitronics? Those were around back in 1964.

    But those panel borders made out of Kirby machines... that is distilled beauty right there.

    Also: from this day forward the only superhero movie I want to see (unless Pixar ever makes a true Kirby FF or Avengers or Thor movie) is one where Rainn Wilson is digitally recreated so that he plays every character in the film including the women. Jim Rugg.
