Self portrait of Jack Kirby.

Notes:
"Kirby's the name! And comics is my game! I can tell you, pals, I enjoy every minute of it! Sure, it's great, going 'round that big creative "bend" and bringing in a sensational "newie!" But the "biggies" of the Golden Age of Comics remain a giant experience in themselves!! Try a bag of genuine Golden Age "Grabbers!"
