13 COVERS every day for a week, that is …
We enjoy doing our 13 COVERS salutes here at 13th Dimension, and you folks seem to like them too.
Most of them seem to work rather nicely, but then you run into a date like this: Aug. 28 — the anniversary of Jack Kirby‘s birth. (He would have been 98 today.)
13 COVERS for Jack Kirby? Impossible. Can’t be done. Solution? The King gets a whole week of retrospectives, starting today!
I know, I know. Even that’s not enough. But we’re gonna have fun with this. Each day we’ll feature a specific title (or concept).
(And since Kirby’s fans are probably the most opinionated in all of comics, I feel especially compelled to point out our usual caveat: These are subjective lists and not meant to be definitive. This is not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and celebration and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
Oh, and if you’re wondering why you don’t see the Fantastic Four in the next week, well, that’s because they got their moment here a few weeks ago.
And now we begin … with the NEW GODS!
