Episode Thirteen

Aww, Yeah. Kirby Style – Part Two

Our love letter to Jack Kirby comes to a close as we finally admit that Chris is never, ever, wrong, decide cell washers at Disney should probably have been named culture destroyers, are blown away that Kirby never got bitter despite all the raw deals he was given, name our favorite Kirby creations, realize that Captain America is more important than money, wonder just what the hell Kirby could’ve done if he’d access to Photoshop, and do an awkward teaser of who’s going to be the next artist in this series.

We’re always in your debt, Jack. Thank you for everything.
