I'm the very proud owner of this great tribute to Jack Kirby by Shaky Kane, featuring Tharg the Mighty as The Silver Surfer. Shaky gave this to me earlier in the year and it now hangs magnificently on my studio wall. This was originally commissioned for 2000 AD at the time of Kirby's death and in print, it was accompanied by this caption; In Memorium. Jack 'King' Kirby. 28 Aug 1917 - 6 Feb 1994. The Father of Comic Art, he taught three generations how to draw.
