KIRBY BIRTHDAY

Jack Kirby would have been 97 had he not died in 1994. He created a bunch of stuff. If you go to the movies, you may recognize some of them:
"Are you sure you don't mean Stan Lee?"
Nope. Jack goddamn Kirby. "Are these all of Jack Kirby's creations?" Not even close. Just the ones they've gotten around to.

SIRENS


enlarge
From the Line it is Drawn #198: “Based on an old suggestion by John Trumbull, the topic is character design What If? Like “What if Jack Kirby had designed Batman?” or “What if Spider-Man had been designed in the 1930s?” or “What if Archie had been designed during the 1990s?” Let your imagination go wild!” FutuGen suggested: “What if Patrick Nagel designed Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn?”
