    If you didn’t already know, today would have been Jack Kirby’s 94th birthday. Not only did Kirby create many of the characters that we know and love today, he was also one of the most stylistically influential comic artists — some might argue the most influential. As such, as we’ve been celebrating August by featuring some of the finest artists in the industry, we would be remiss to not celebrate the work he who might be considered the greatest. Follow the cut for some of my favorite Kirby illustrations, and I invite you to share some of your favorites in the comments.





























    And, of course:
