Jack Kirby Museum

If you've ever watched a comic book movie lately, chances are you were watching a creation of Jack Kirby's. The Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center, honoring the late comic illustration legend, has officially launched online. It's in the early stages, but I'm excited about its possibilities.

The Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center is organized exclusively for educational purposes; more specifically, to promote and encourage the study, understanding, preservation and appreciation of the work of Jack Kirby by illustrating the scope of Kirby's multi-faceted career, communicating the stories, inspirations and influences of Jack Kirby, celebrating the life of Jack Kirby and his creations, and building understanding of comic books and comic book creators. To this end, the Museum will sponsor and otherwise support study, teaching, conferences, discussion groups, exhibitions, displays, publications and cinematic, theatrical or multimedia productions... The Kirby Museum's long-term plans include a major travelling retrospective in 2007, a documentary, and more.

TOTH to David Pescovitz.
