Here's a question. Lots of comic artists say they get inspiration from Jack Kirby. Where did Jack Kirby get HIS inspiration from? Who inspired HIM to be a comic artist?

comicbookfanzevad:

Damn good question. From what I’ve read about Kirby he’s always loved drawing and art. He’s basically self taught. He went to a art school called the Pratt Institute and quit after a week because he wanted to work on multiple projects at the same time and get them finished and not spend weeks on the same project. He has listed as his inspirations for art the Comic strip artists Alex Raymond and Hal Foster. And editorial cartoonists C. H. Sykes, “Ding” Darling, and Rollin Kirby.

If anything he got into comics because it let him draw, let him pay his bills, and allowed him to work on multiple projects. I remember seeing an interview with one of Jack’s kids saying that Jack would read a mythology book or a history book to get inspiration for his drawing. 

Great man. I don’t take sides. But I think the truth is somewhere in between what Kirby and Lee have said as far as who created what in the Marvel Pantheon. Plus it’s known Lee and Kirby’s generation of artists and writers ripped off each other. So who knows.

Kirby was influenced by milton caniff. You can tell by the square eyes and the manly men faces of Steve canyon in some of Kirby’s art.

BLOOD ON CHRISTMAS
A Short Crime Tale of The Shadow
by Francesco Francavilla
The Shadow  Hello Pulp Friends,

hope you all are having a joyful time with your families and friends during these holidays :)
To put you even more in the Xmas mood, here’s a full complete story, a silent tale in the tradition of LULLUBY.
Some of you will remember this story: originally aired here on Pulp Sunday in December 2007, in a strip format, I am re-airing today in re-mastered first-time-in-color version, and in a comic format.
Hope you all enjoy what I consider a “Margot Year Zero" tale: yep, the girl in the story is what will become the future assistant of Lamont Creston/The SHADOW! :)

Click on the pages for a bigger and better viewing/reading experience.

Have a Pulp Sunday everyone! :)
