Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby: A Wondrous Week Celebrating the King
Review Marvel.com's loving look back at one of the architects of the House of Ideas!
Comic book legend and one of the architects of the merry Marvel Universe, Jack Kirby was born 102 years ago this week, on August 28, 1917. To mark the occasion, Marvel.com took a look back at his legacy, from planet Earth to Asgard, Ego, and beyond.

This impact—both overt and subconscious—has resonated since Kirby's early days with a new character called Captain America, into his remarkable run with the Fantastic Four, through his veteran pursuits with the Eternals, until now.

Long live the King!
