KIRBY'S CAPTAIN - SUPER SOLDIER AT WAR...
Here's a limited-edition print that JACK KIRBY did for MARVEL
COMICS to celebrate the 50th Birthday of CAPTAIN AMERICA in 1990.
I have to be honest and say that it's not quite JK at his best, but he was near
the end of his life at this point, and age and illness had doubtless taken their toll
on his artistic talents. At least the much-maligned Marvel were still trying to
put a bit of work Jack's way, 'though no doubt their critics will claim they
were merely trying to exploit him. Can't win, eh?
