pages from Kamandi #6

Because no nation may remain neutral where the King of Comics is concerned! PictureBox publisher Dan Nadel has posted a mouth-watering assortment of pictures from the Jack Kirby art show he and British critic Paul Gravett have curated for the Fumetto comics festival in Lucerne, Switzerland. The show occupies three (count ‘em!) floors and consists of 150 pages of Kirby art, including the complete Kamandi< #6 and almost the entirety of Fantastic Four #54. You can find out more about the exhibition at Fumetto’s website, and much much more from Gravett’s lengthy essay on Kirby in general and the exhibit in particular. Can some of North America’s convention organizations start thinking along these lines, please oh please?

“Can some of North America’s convention organizations start thinking along these lines, please oh please?”

What? Americans adapting ideas from other countries? European countries, no less???

No thank you. We like our rubbish public transportation infrastructure, expensive and inefficient health care system AND our marginal comic-readership just fine, thank you.

“You think this letter on my head stands for France?” ;-)

Pretty much that entire collection was exhibited at Eastman’s Words and Pictures comic book museum in Northampton almost 20 years ago.

You know, the museum that went under due to lack of support?

So, yeah, North America did think along those lines.
