Into The Kirby Collage!

One of the great innovations Jack Kirby introduced into his comics during the 1960’s was the collage background. The King cut up old magazines to create wild landscapes that always fascinated me as a kid (even if they printed rather muddy). So when I got the chance to do one of my own for the uber-retro 1963 series, I started snipping. This one is from 1963 BOOK ONE: MYSTERY INCORPORATED published in 1993. Even though we printed on pulp we were able to get much sharper repro than those old Marvels. Script by Affable Al Moore, pencils by Roarin’ Rick Veitch, inks by Dashin’ Dave Gibbons, lettering by Dandy Don Simpson and color by Merry Marvin Kilroy.
