Jack Kirby's In The Days Of The Mob 2



As I'm sure everybody knows, Jack Kirby would've been 100 this month. So here's one I've been saving.
Courtesy of pal of this blog kiyote76, here's what would've been the second issue of In The Days Of The Mob, once again presented by the satanic Warden Frye from his prison in Hell.
In the documentary Jack Kirby: Storyteller, Jack's son Neal mentions that, towards the end of his life, Kirby was worried he might be forgotten as the years rolled on.
Never gonna happen.

  1. Love those two Modern Technology/Get Away Car pages - they some how manage to be atypical for Kirby while still really having that "world that is coming" quality that characterized his best 70s work.

    Great follow up to last years 99th anniversary post - clearly you're a man with a plan Pete.

  3. I was wondering why you hadn't got around to posting this yet - but saving it for Jack's birthday was a splendid idea - especially for those who've never seen any of this, it makes for a very special treat.

    I hope Jack knew how much he was appreciated & loved by the people, despite the shabby treatment he endured from corporate trolls. The fact that so much of his work has become household knowledge in recent popular culture only solidifies what we, the readers, have known all along for decades: There is only one King.

  4. All true, guys. Still wish I didn't always have to constantly explain who Jack was to my non-comic reading buddies though...
