Jack Kirby's life, presented as if he were the narrator of a classic Marvel comic -- well, I take that back, with the giant captions, stiff art, and strict six-panel grid, it looks more like a product of Charlton Comics, Marvel's Connecticut competitor. But Kirby's life is big, even if these panels are small. (Oddly, the creator has chosen to depict Kirby with a giant manga head while everyone else in the book is illustrated in a more traditional style.)

Based mostly on interviews Kirby gave late in life to fan magazines and books devoted to him, we follow "The King" from his birth in 1917 to his death in 1994. So if you are a Stan Lee fan, prepare to see him thrown under a fleet of buses. Kirby was a grinder, churning out ideas and pages like a machine, often working simultaneously on several projects for multiple publishers. It's sad to see him be worn down and become embittered with the industry that took so much from him while giving little back.

Kirby's art could be goofy at times and way too blocky (those giant rectangular fingers reaching off the page!), but it was striking as hell. His writing on the other hand . . . The more control he had over the dialogue and plot, the worse his books became. The cosmic crap of the New Gods/Fourth World and Eternals is just unreadable. I think there's a reason none of these characters (maybe excepting Darkseid) ever became big hits no matter how often DC and Marvel have tried. (And now the movie studios think they can do something with them. Poor saps!)

Anyhow, I still respect Kirby as a creator and will not deny the huge impact he had on the industry during his life and beyond. Giant corporations will still be milking his work long after we are all gone. ( )
