Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)
It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.
Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.
Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.
And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.
And let’s remember he was born Jacob Kurtzberg, to his Austrian Jewish immigrant parents, Rose and Benjamin Kurtzberg. Nazis were more than just the bad guys of the war to him, they were the people who slaughtered his people and he probably lost family to them. The threat to show him “real Nazis” is very chilling in that light.
Badass Jew Jack Kirby!
Tumblr could learn a lesson from this…
imagine a video game where you create a hero whose destiny is to save everyone, but throughout the game you start making harder and more questionable decisions, and the game gets darker and darker. and in the end you’re just standing there, clutching the controller and finally realizing you were playing the villain all along
Seriously, I can’t even wait for this!
