This is a LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER version (550 copies) of KIRBY FIVE-OH!, featuring all the original contents of the softcover version (see description below), but with a full-color wrapped hardcover, and an individually-numbered extra Kirby art plate not included in the softcover edition! This hardcover edition is ONLY AVAILABLE FROM TWOMORROWS, and is not sold in stores.
The publication that started the TwoMorrows juggernaut presents KIRBY FIVE-OH!, a special look at the best of everything from Jack Kirby’s 50-year career in comics! The regular columnists from The Jack Kirby Collector magazine have formed a distinguished panel of experts to choose and examine: The best Kirby story published each year from 1938-1987! The best covers from each decade! Jack’s 50 best unused pieces of art! His 50 best character designs! And profiles of, and commentary by, the 50 people most influenced by Kirby’s work! Plus there’s a 50-page gallery of Kirby’s powerful raw pencil art, and a deluxe color section of photos and finished art from throughout his entire half-century oeuvre. This tabloid-sized trade paperback features a previously unseen Kirby Superman cover inked by “DC: The New Frontier” artist DARWYN COOKE, and an introduction by Mark Evanier, helping make this the ultimate retrospective on the career of the “King” of comics!
