The 1000th Jack Kirby Page

UPDATED Feb 28: FINALLY! Cover #1,000 is The Demon

What if Kirby is closing in on the 1,000th page of Jack Kirby original art posted in the Gallery. WiK launched in August 2010 with little more than 100 pages. Membership access gives the additional benefit of zooming into the art to study and enjoy it.

On the Road Again: Building the Jack Kirby Original Art Archive

February 16, 2012

Next month starts the time of the year when I pack up my large format scanner and get hit the road or the plane or whatever, with high hopes of archiving more Jack Kirby art for the Jack Kirby Original Art Archive. Between Rand Hoppe of the Jack Kirby Museum and me, we've scanned almost 2,000 pages of Kirby original art pages. Our goal is to reach 3,000 before year's end.

To attempt to meet this goal, there are several upcoming events where I'll be set up to scan more Kirby pages with the help of comic art dealers and art collectors.
