The Jacked Kirby Podcast: Episode #4 - The King of Covers


Unless you live under a rock, you definitely know that Jack Kirby was a fantastic comic book artist. No one in the industry ever could claim to have as much published work as the King... but one aspect of his art that gets overlooked sometimes is his fantastic ability to create amazing COVERS for these books. Whether it was his monthly books that he was also doing pencils for, or just a book he never drew at all and was just pinch hitting on a cover as a guest artist, his body of work is just fabulous. Join hosts Tommy & Mike D as well as this weeks guests James West & Joey Armao as they talk about their favorite Kirby Covers ever!!!!
