He's still drawn to Jack Kirby

October 04, 2009

Loved Geoff Boucher's story on Jack King Kirby ("A Credit to His Name," Sept. 27). It's richly deserved that Kirby is finally getting a little attention, although far too little too late, for his contributions to comics and American culture.

I was a huge Marvel comics fan when young and stopped reading them in my teens. I thought it was disinterest, but I realized late in life that I lost interest mainly because Kirby had left Marvel. They had a lot of artists go through Marvel and DC, but only a few were magic for me, people like Kirby, Steve Ditko, Barry Smith and Jim Steranko.

So, instead of a Marvel fan, I guess I'm really a huge Kirby fan.

I have high hopes that Lisa Kirby and her kin can get some of the rewards that the "King" never saw.
