EXCLUSIVE: John Morrow’s spring 2020 issue gets into the expansive mind of the master…
Jack Kirby was a visionary — and even calling him that feels like selling him short.
Be that as it may, John Morrow’s Jack Kirby Collector #79 — due in April 2020 — will feature a hardcore look at the King’s big ideas.
Check out the official TwoMorrows description:
JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR #79
Spring 2020 – 84-page FULL-COLOR magazine
Feast your eyes on “The Big Picture” in Jack Kirby Collector #79 (84 full-color pages)! We give you a glimpse of how Kirby fits into the grand scheme of things, from his creations’ lasting legacy, to how his work tackles big issues like illiteracy. There’s a huge interview with Jack himself, a look at inconsistencies in his 1960s Marvel work, a visual before-&-after showing large and small changes in his comics, the big concepts he conveyed in OMAC, his best double-page spreads, and more! Plus Mark Evanier’s 2019 Kirby Tribute Panel (with Kurt Busiek, Buzz Dixon, and others), a pencil art gallery, and a new cover based on Kirby’s original, unaltered cover art from OMAC #1! Edited by John Morrow.
A few thoughts:
— The issue is due to ship April 22, 2020, but it’s early and that’s subject to change a week or so either way. It will be available at comics shops, of course, but you can already pre-order it directly from TwoMorrows. Click here.
— Here at 13th Dimension, we often reveal new pubs from the likes of Marvel, DC and IDW, among others. Now, we’re doing the same with TwoMorrows. (We’ve been providing you EXCLUSIVE EXCERPTS from their mags and books for years now.) Dig it.
