The King of Comics Talks Creativity In A Rare Video Interview from 1987
In comics and out, there are few creative figures greater than Jack Kirby. As the co-creator of the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Captain America, The Hulk, and Darkseid Kirby's immortal creations live on in both the pages of today's comics and on the silver screen.
And today we're sharing with you this video clip from the long out-of-print Masters Of Comic Book Art series of documentaries introduced by Harlan Ellison. Kirby talks about the genesis of his space spanning Marvel comics, the creation of Silver Surfer and Galactus, and the ultimate realization of the concepts behind them... the epic New Gods comics for DC.
Hearing when Jack says "If my life were to end tomorrow it would be fulfilled" brought a tear to our eyes. We'll forever miss your love for new ideas and the medium itself, Jack!
