LIVE FROM KIRBY PLAZA



Jack ‘The King’ Kirby not only co-created much of the Marvel Universe, including Captain America and The X-Men, but also created the Fourth World epic for DC and pioneered romance and kid gang genres in American comic books.

His legend and legacy are celebrated by Paul Gambaccini, Mike Lake and Chrissie Harper, editor of the 15th anniversary edition of Jack Kirby Quarterly. Hosted by Paul Gravett, with live transatlantic links to Greg Theakston, Kirby confidante and author of the new biography Jack Magic, Vertigo artist James Romberger and Kirby Museum archivist Rand Hoppe.

Supported by Jack Kirby Quarterly & Quality Communications.
