Jack Kirby is one of the most influential and popular artists in comics
history. With Stan Lee, he created the Fantastic Four and defined the
drawing and narrative style of Marvel Comics from the 1960s to the
present day. Kirby's distinctive narrative drawing, use of bold
abstraction, and creation of angst-ridden and morally flawed heroes mark
him as one of the most influential mainstream creators in comics.
Charles Hatfield analyzes the development of Kirby's cartooning
technique, his use of dynamic composition, the recurring themes and
moral ambiguities in his work, his eventual split from Lee, and his
later work as a solo artist. Also available in a hardback edition.
