More Kirby goodness

Buddy Rob Barrett of "Kracalactaka" has a great analysis of two pages showing Jack Kirby's fantastic layout skills. Head on over and check them out, it's really good stuff.

On a side note, I'm glad to see Space Ghost's sidekick getting a shout-out all the way back in the Sixties. Well done, King Kirby!

    This is probably blasphemy, but… I don’t think Kirby could draw his way out of a paper bag. His panel layouts are great, granted, but his actual drawing leaves much to be desired, in my opinion.

    His anatomy was pretty good, too, Imp, but I agree that he drew really ugly faces.
