“Joe Keatinge has established himself as the latest new writer I want to undermine and destroy. It’s just top class stuff.”

"I think Joe is definitely one to watch."
- Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Invincible)

On my birthday fifteen years ago this Ladrönn-drawn Silver Surfer graphic novel (acting as a sequel to the Moebius-drawn Silver Surfer: Parable AND Jack Kirby’s then unresolved cliffhanger from Silver Surfer #18*) was cancelled.

On my birthday this Wednesday it’s my wish this thing gets restarted after Ladrönn finishes Hip Flask. Way more information here. Apologies for the scan quality, but it’s what out there.

*And yes I know that was resolved in two issues of Web Spinners, but who cares?

Jack Kirby’s Spider-Man fascinates me. 

It never works works for me, but that’s why it works for me. Does that make sense at all? Spider-Man is so inherently Ditko to me that Jack’s line just never quite clicks with Spidey. But it has this alluring oddness I can’t deny. Weird stuff.

Anyway, big thanks to Erik Larsen for compiling these on the Jack Kirby! Facebook group.

Jack Kirby’s work space.
Absolutely my favorite and most inspiring image I’ve seen in a while.
I love how unpretentious and no-bullshit it is. It’s a plain desk, with a plain chair and a plain side chair, all of which are beat up from use and covered in ink. It faces a corner, one that’s covered in unorganized comics. It’s inspiring to see the desk that held the home of creation for countless characters was so practical. Nothing fancy about it. Just a place to sit down, shut up and do the work.
