Penciled spread from ETERNALS #3 by Jack Kirby
Assuming this all works properly, today is August 28, the 97th birthday of Jack Kirby, pictured above.
As part of the overall Hero Initiative/Kirby4Heroes effort (and assuming I get all of this stuff input properly) all throughout the day we’ll be posting examples of the King’s work here.
And if you wanted to take this opportunity to click the donate button at the upper left and give a few bucks to the Hero Initiative, that would be lovely as well.
Iron Fist #15, page 11 by John Byrne & Dave Cockrum & Dan Green. 1977.
Dave Cockrum at the direction of Jim Shooter, redrew the faces of the X-Men in this issue of Iron Fist. Specific to this page, he also drew the “Fang” costume as John Byrne originally drew Wolverne’s regular costume.
To quote JB:
"I drew Wolverine in his usual duds, and editorial had them redrawn as the Fang outfit. Lot of redrawing on that issue. Virtually none of the X-faces are mine. Since it was my "audition" for UNCANNY, it seemed very odd to allow Dave [Cockrum] such liberties. At the time, I asked if he was going to redraw all the faces in the regular title once I came aboard."
