Jack started in the comics industry in the 1930’s and worked under a variety of pen names including Jack Curtiss, Curt Davis, Lance Kirby, Ted Grey, Charles Nicholas, and Fred Sande.

Unfortunately, in 1994, Jack Kirby passed from this world but his legend lives on in our memories and his legacy continues in the current comics.

The Kirby Museum seeks to compile all the parts of Jack’s life, his art and his personal history in one place. This is also the home of the Kirby Effect, a journal chronicling the Life of Jack and the journey of the Museum.

This is also the home of Stan Taylor’s Jack Kirby biography, so far they have only gotten the first four chapters live, but it is a good read and well worth the time.
