King-Size Kirby Hardcover Announced By Marvel

King Size Kirby HC Book CoverWith a recent legal settlement, it seems Marvel and the Kirby family are in one another's good graces for the first time in years.

As a result, and following on the heels of the massive success of some of some recent high-profile hardcover collections celebrating Marvel's history, the comics publisher will release King-Size Kirby next summer, an anthology collecting dozens of stories from throughout Jack Kirby's decades-long career at Marvel.

Weighing in at more than 800 pages, the foot-tall book will be printed in Marvel's Adamantium-sized format and features work from Kirby's western, war, mystery and romance eras in addition to his superhero work.

“Fans should reinforce their bookshelves and coffee tables,” joked Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “This one is going to be huge – literally! We’re aiming to bring fans the ultimate collection, the ultimate collectable and the definitive Jack Kirby experience. The King of Comics deserves no less.”

King-Size Kirby is due out in July 2015. You can check out the contents and solicitation text below.
