    Description

    Jack Kirby - Psychedelic Pin-Up Illustration Original Art (circa 1969). For many Baby Boomers, Marvel Comics' flawed heroes (dialogued with a tongue-in-cheek irreverence by Stan Lee, and set loose in cosmic settings pictured by Jack Kirby) were no less a force in the 1960s pop culture renaissance than the Beatles were with their rock n' roll music. Novelist Jonathan Lethem, in an essay, even compared the supremely creative collaboration of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby with that of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Direct from the eve of the Silver Age comes this electrifying "King" Kirby icon, rendered in fluorescent hues. The glowing aerialist displays an energetic euphoria, as though he has at last broken free from a blacklight-filled universe! One of a series of four paintings of this type (displayed in The Jack Kirby Collector #19), this eye-popping pin-up has an image area measuring 19" x 26". The art is in Excellent condition and was signed by Jack Kirby at the bottom right. From the Fantastic Frank Collection.
