'Comic Book Apocalypse: The Graphic World of Jack Kirby' at CS Northridge


Comic book fans, begin to get ready to make a road trip. Famed comics artist Jack Kirby (1917-1994), whose work launched The Avengers, X-Men, Captain America, and the Marvel Universe, is the focus of an exhibition at the California State University, Northridge Art Galleries (CSUN). Called the “King” of comic books, he, along with Stan Lee, is the best-known artist in superhero comics. His characters, concepts, and plots became the springboard of the Marvel Universe in comics, in film, and across media. Kirby designed and launched such iconic properties as The Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Thor, The Hulk, and Nick Fury; he co-created Captain America and The Black Panther, and helped launch other Marvel properties such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Daredevil.
