A lot of the silly comics panels I post are by Jack Kirby and however kooky they are there's always something lurid and arresting and resonant about Kirby's comics. Also! I! Like! Exclamation points!!!
My friends at Hilobrow are running a really fun series of posts about comic book legend Jack Kirby. It's called Kirb Your Enthusiasm, and each essay is by a different person analyzing a panel from a Kirby title. Posts so far include Douglas Rushkoff on The Eternals, John Hilgart on Black Magic, Gary Panter on Demon, Dan Nadel on OMAC, and Deb Chachra on Captain America.
I lucked out and got to write about Kamandi.
