Jack Kirby created or co-created some of comic books' most popular characters including Captain America, The X-Men, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, The Mighty Thor, Darkseid, and The New Gods. More significantly, he created much of the visual language for fantasy and adventure comics. There were comics before Kirby, but for the most part their page layout, graphics, and visual dynamic aped what was being done in syndicated newspaper strips. Almost everything that was different about comic books began in the forties on the drawing table of Jack Kirby. This is his story by one who knew him well--the authorized celebration of the one and only "King of Comics" and his groundbreaking work.

"I don't think it's any accident that . . . the entire Marvel universe and the entire DC universe are all pinned or rooted on Kirby's concepts." --Michael Chabon
