MY FIRST KIRBY. The reason why Marshall Muldoon is in Earth X,
This review is from: Captain America by Jack Kirby Omnibus (Marvel Omnibus) (Hardcover)
Okay, I guess an issue of Kamandi was actually the first. But these were the first issues of Captain AMerica that I was exposed to. It's Cap vs. Monsters, blinded by the Skull, Nazis and much more. Some might say they're not the best stories. But they certainly the best ideas. And worthy of being read and reread. They inspire me every time I page through them.

When I was about ten years old I thought anyone could draw like Jack Kirby. However his work won me over with his dynamic characters and great battle scenes. I don't understand the whole "Jack Kirby was a bad writer" from various critics. Kirby fought in World War II and had a very different world view than Stan Lee. He was from an era were we were battling for our freedom. You can see Jack's philosophy and political points for view right in Captain America's pages. I believe he didn't want to do any cross overs because he played such a pivotal role in the Marvel Universe and it was being taken away from him. Kirby was entitled to an equal billing with Stan Lee. In all of Lee's 1970's "Origins of Marvel Comics books" the credits should have read "by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby"
