Unpublished Jack Kirby Cartoons Submitted To 'The New Yorker' See The Light Of Day...


Jack Kirby is a fan boy favorite all time comic artists... especially this fan boy right here. I love his classic works, his trademark 'Kirby Krackle', and giant alien monstrosities that he often constructed in his works. But it all had to start somewhere... and thanks to Two Morrows Publishing we are getting a rare glimpse into just that beginning. Kirby Unleashed was a portfolio put out by Jack back in the 70's that highlight various works from his career. It is long out f print. In that book Jack included some proposed cartoons that he had submitted throughout the years that had been rejected, even some that were done when he was just a teen! Two in particular had been submitted to The New Yorker... and are quite good despite Kirby being so young. When you git it, you got it. Two Morrows has a digital version of the book for sale, for $5.95, and it includes 48 wonderful pages of PDF goodness available for download. I for one can't wait to get a look at these pages of Kirby drawings on my tablet. You can get yours by clicking here. Check out the two failed 'New Yorker' cartoons after the jump...
