“Jack Kirby is one of the most important figures in comic book history, responsible for some of the best-known superheroes in the world,” the viral graphic reads. “His unique vision influenced the art form more than any other cartoonist, and remains the apex of visual storytelling.”
Kirby is responsible for creating several comic icons for both Marvel and DC. At the House of Ideas, he helped create the likes of the Avengers (Captain America, the Hulk, and Captain America), X-Men, and the Fantastic Four while his New Gods characters at DC remain fan favorites to this very day.
