How Jack Kirby's Religion Influenced His Art


If you like comics you might find this interesting, I do. I was privileged to meet Jack Kirby in the 1970's, He actually drew on a leg cast I wore for a time after surgery. So sorry I didn't keep it. He was a very kind man and it was an honor to talk with him. New Gods and Forever people were two of my favorite comic titles. I knew the King was Jewish but never considered how that might influence his artistic creations.

Jack Kirby couldn't hold Raphael's jock...or Tintoretto's neither.

Giorgio Vasari

I appreciate you chiming in Giorgio. You sound you young and spry which is a bit surprising since you cacked in 1574.

Scrota channeling Giorgio...and holding his jock too (what's left of it).
