Jack Kirby's Thor Gets Artist's Edition Treatment From IDW

IDW Publishing is doing up a new Artist's Edition focused on Jack Kirby's work on The Mighty Thor. The 15" x 22" hardcover collection includes classic complete stories from Journey Into Mystery #111, #117, #118, and other stories, plus a beautiful gallery section by Kirby.

"I've had the great pleasure of working with one of the most creative men in comics—the great Jack Kirby," said Stan Lee, "whose magnificent artwork and wonderful story sense have rightly earned him the nickname 'King Kirby.' He had the ability to take any theme and make it look spectacular due to the power and the brilliance of his artwork. If ever a writer had the perfect collaborator, I was lucky to have had the brilliant and inimitable Jack Kirby."

Jack Kirby was the most important and influential artist in comic's history. Besides Thor, he co-created most of the Marvel Universe, including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man, Iron Man, The Silver Surfer, and so many others. As writer, artist, innovator, his legacy is unparalleled. All the grandeur and energy that infused Kirby's artistry is evident here—this is the next best thing to looking over the masters shoulder at his drawing board!
