IDW Publishing is pleased to announce Jack Kirby’s The Mighty Thor Artist’s Edition—the very first Marvel Comics Artist’s Edition to feature Kirby’s work. This mammoth 15” x 22” hardcover collection includes classic complete stories from Journey Into Mystery #111, #117, #118, and other stories, plus a beautiful gallery section by Kirby, the undisputed King of Comics.
“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with one of the most creative men in comics—the great Jack Kirby,” said Stan Lee, “whose magnificent artwork and wonderful story sense have rightly earned him the nickname ‘King Kirby.’ He had the ability to take any theme and make it look spectacular due to the power and the brilliance of his artwork. If ever a writer had the perfect collaborator, I was lucky to have had the brilliant and inimitable Jack Kirby.”
Jack Kirby was the most important and influential artist in comic’s history. Besides Thor, he co-created most of the Marvel Universe, including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, Iron Man, The Silver Surfer, and so many others. As writer, artist, innovator, his legacy is unparalleled. All the grandeur and energy that infused Kirby’s artistry is evident here—this is the next best thing to looking over the masters shoulder at his drawing board!
“Jack Kirby is still the visual heart of the Marvel style, so having an opportunity to experience his originals at the size they were drawn, corrections and all, is a rare and valuable opportunity for any aficionado of the comic book mediums,” said Marvel SVP & Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
“Without Jack Kirby, the comic books we know and love would not exist,” said Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier, “His work influenced and shaped the entire art form. It’s as simple as that.”
Look for Jack Kirby’s The Mighty Thor Artist’s Edition in stores this coming May!
