LIVE FROM KIRBY PLAZA


X-Men, Silver Surfer, Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man are just a few of the pop-icon pantheon co-created by comic artist Jack Kirby, also known as ‘The King’.

Speakers: TV and radio presenter and collector Paul Gambaccini; Kim Newman; Chrissie Harper, editor of Jack Kirby Quarterly. Evanier and John Morrow from Jack Kirby Collector join us via a live internet link-up, with Kirby himself (who died in 1994) appearing virtually via sound extracts from a 1993 interview. Hosted by Paul Gravett. More…
