Jack “The King” Kirby would have been ninety today. Comics Reporter, a blog that we feel gets grumpier pretty much every day, still remains the place that delivers when it comes to mini-galleries like this one: just some images, random images, GREAT images, of artwork by Jack Kirby. Whether you like comics or not, please — do yourself a favor and take a look at this. The energy of his linework simply crackles with mad genius and crazy fun, and if you haven’t had your afternoon coffee today, save yourself the cash and look at this stuff instead. It’s got the juice.
Long live the King!
WHERE YOU WILL GO AND WHAT YOU WILL DO, TONIGHT IN PORTLAND:
Pretty much a no-brainer, you will go see folk-legend Bert Jansch tonight. Philly favorite Meg Baird is the opener. Bert was in Pentangle. Meg is in Espers. That’s old freakfolk you love and new freakfolk you love. Meaning: you will love this show. We’ll see you there!
Lola’s Room at the Crystal, tonight!
