Supergraphics Super Calendar by Jim Steranko and Jack Kirby

Bout forty years ago, Steranko put out a superhero calendar with each month illustrated by a golden-age great.  Bout twenty years ago, he tackled Kirby's Stuntman contribution to the calendar, and vee-oh-la, as Bugs Bunny would say

Young Axus by Barry Smith

It's like Conan on steroids, or, more aptly, how Conan would look around issue # 100 or so if someone had had the genius to help the genius keep doin his thing on the comic

Sweet'n Simple Silver Surfer by Jack Kirby

This looks like a fairly quick sketch, and yet, like all the greats, even the quickest sketch can rock it

Jim Steranko Out of Africa

Don't know exactly what this is, but I dig it.  First image from an old magazine interview of Steranko, then I saw it as the program cover, then the mailer.  If you have a clue, have mercy, cuz I'd luvta know more

Beast Rider by Jack Kirby

Another great Kirby drawing that almost begs to be colorized---don't know if it was intended for some story, but it does just fine stand'n alone

Mister Miracle #10 Cover by Jack Kirby

Again, two great covers, and only one was published on the comic (wonder if Jack might have slid right in nicely with all these alternate cover schemes nowadays)

Pacific Rim

Did I miss this already?

Don't spend much time in "The Present".  Oh, well, guess I"ll see it on DVD.  Really reminded me of Kirby

Luke Skywalker by Gil Kane

If you've checked out Star Hawks(lots on here, by the by), you know Gil Kane woulda been great drawing Star Wars

Mister Miracle #7 Cover by Jack Kirby

Two great covers, only one was published
