Happy Birthday Jack Kirby!


Romance! A genre of comic books synonymous with Jack Kirby -- undisputed father (along with Joe Simon) of the genre. Let's take a moment today to remember Kirby on what would have been his 95th birthday!


A big happy birthday to Kirby --
whose legacy will never be forgotten!
