Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center
Devoted to Archiving The King of Comics

There can be no denying that Jack Kirby was one of the comic industry's brightest and most talented stars of all. Kirby channeled oversized action, immense ideas, enormous imagination, and colossal characters through his trademark larger than life visuals and changed the comic industry forever. Instrumental in the creation of comic industry giants like the X-Men, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, and DC's Fourth World titles, Kirby's body of illustrative work is just as vast as anything he ever drew or wrote.

And now the king of comics has his own museum.

The Kirby estate, along with TwoMorrows Publisher John Morrow and cartoonist Randolph Hoppe, announced the creation of the Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center which aims to build an exhaustive, collaborative, and cross-referential online resource devoted to Jack "King" Kirby, partner with museums, conferences and conventions around the world on Kirby-related exhibits, and catalogue the man's massive body of work. We here at the Isotope couldn't be happier to hear the news and look forward to the opportunity to make a contribution to this much-deserved celebration of the comic industry's one true king.
