This page features a tribute to the artist Jack Kirby and the impact his work has had on my life. You’ll see items from my art collection displayed here, read cool information and see photos of my experiences connected to this great artist. Kirby’s Marvel work is what ignited my interest in reading comics while I was growing up in the 1960’s. It’s the major reason that inspires me to buy, sell, and collect art today.
