The life & times of Jack Kirby, the legendary father of American comic books. For 50 years, Kirby drew more pages than any other comic book artist. With Joe Simon, he created Captain America, & DC Comicsís Sandman. In the 1960s, Kirby paired with Stan Lee to develop heroes that included: the Fantastic 4, the Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, the Avengers, & the Silver Surfer. This book chronicles Kirbyís origins in N.Y., his early commercial triumphs & failures, his partnership with Stan Lee, & his legal battles with Marvel Comics over the ownership of his original art. This portrait of one of its most enduring -- & overlooked -- artists is also a lively account of the comic book industry, from its inauspicious origins to its sensational success.
