February 6th 1994 was the date we lost the King of comics. Still a legend.

Yep, much as I love Stan Lee, I wish Kirby (and Ditko) got more credit for the MCU. Their work was vital. And I find that the older I get the more appealing Kirby's work is.

For sheer dynamism, I'm not sure he's ever been equalled, let alone bettered. I loved those early Avengers issues, and his return to Marvel in the 70's.

We have missed him too early, also compared to Stan very long life; of course his run on FF is unrepeatable but his ideas were always fantastic, just think of his Fourth World characters that still rock on Dc Comics line-up and I even loved his Kirbyverse for Topps| Very Happy Cool

I REALLY need to track down his Fourth World run and read it all the way through. Not sure I even really know what issues it all covered, but I should make the effort. And JUST his work, nothing from later. I have already read the derivative stuff, need to read the originals.

I know this is probably an unusual opinion, but of the fourth world stuff, all that ever really grabbed me were Mister Miracle and, most of all, Jimmy Olsen, which was decidedly peripheral to the rest. I really liked his Jimmy Olsen.

No more unusual than other opinions I've seen. Do you think it's worth reading the story as a whole? Through Hunger Dogs?

I think it may well benefit from being read as a complete work. I think Kirby had a flair for epics which didn't necessarily work so well as disjointed, separate chunks, if you see what I mean. His Eternals certainly worked better for me when read all together.

I feel the same way about Morrison. I'll look for these, then, after I figure out what issues I'll need. Thank you!
