Marvel Milestone: Jack Kirby's Birthday, August 28th

Today is Jack Kirby's birthday.  Even though he's not around, I still like to celebrate with a big old stogie and some Kirby comics.  Well, maybe not a real cigar, but here is one classic Marvel image you will like.

Merry Marvel Marching society poster by Jack Kirby in color

This is one of the Marvelmania posters that Jack Kirby did in the late 60s, featuring Captain America, the Fantastic Four, Thor, Spider-Man, Doctor Doom and Silver Surfer.  The Jack Kirby Collector Magazine #47 had this on the cover, which is where the scan came from.

For another tribute to the King, check my Amazing Heroes 100 article on Giant-Size Geek that features a few cartoons from Kevin O'Neill, William Messner-Loebs, and Scott Shaw.  Nuff Said!

Each writing instrument in the series has more than 2,000 geometric facets, giving them a unique optical illusion that makes your eyes charming and fun. The geometry of Taipan Solitaire was born from the desire to combine Montblanc classic design with unique materials.
