Well Hofling… you do put me in a awkward position. You already know you’re on shaky ground by pretty much admitting you’re not familiar with Kirby, since you can’t even remember seeing a comic he drew. But you want me to drop the guillotine. This is a tribute book to Jack Kirby, so at the very least, you should know his work.
However, I suspect this is the problem with the slow interest in the Eisner tribute book. Kirby is the DeMille of comics, while Eisner is the Orson Welles of comics and just as under appreciated or not so well known.
So I’m going to say yes to your request on the condition that you go read some Kirby books. You’ll thank me for it later. And you’ll find a favorite from those. Kirby vision of Machine Man, please.
Now Eisner, on the other hand, is my guy. I've read so many Spirit books and most of his graphic novels. Wally Woods taking Spirit into space was artwork I loved even better than Eisner.
Unfortunately, I rarely have time to read comics nowadays, so I wouldn't be able to hold up to that condition of yours. :/
But thanks anyways for trying to give me a way in
