Eternals and the Jack Kirby Legacy Hit THE SPLASH PAGE

What's the deal with the Kirby revamps? Is Kirby's 1970s work so distinct that anyone trying to resurrect it in a new series is doomed to failure? Can anyone but Kirby do anything worthwhile with the New Gods? With the Eternals? With Devil Dinosaur? Chad Nevett and I wonder about such things, prompted by our reading of the Knauf/Acuna Eternals #1 which just came out this week.

Join us as we deconstruct the Kirby legacy and consider which of the Kirby revamps have actually been worth our time, and which ones deserve their quick cancellation or reader apathy (Chuck Austen's The Eternal, anyone?).

We care about this stuff, and we know you do too. Because it's the most important topic in the world today.

All this fancy talk and more, in the newest installment of what one reader may or may not have called, "the greatest thing I have ever read, ever," The Splash Page.

People seem to like clicking down here as well, so, if you're into that sort of thing, click HERE.

Just say "NO!" to molesting Kirby's memory, kids. It's the cool thing to do.

I think I must be the only person who really enjoyed Mister Miracle and disliked Manhattan Guardian.

Not that I focused on, like, two sentences of your entire column, or anything.

Timothy Callahan said...

Yes, Matt, you are the only person.

But it's okay.

Hey, are you going to the SDCC?

Matt Jacobson said...

Nope...I will be in Mexico enjoying my Honeymoon.
