As we said earlier today, some big Jack Kirby Heavy Metal news. Here you go:
Before the King of Comics’ debut in the pages of our hallowed (and now humbled) magazine, we present this mind-blowing artwork in a series of limited edition blacklight prints! Barry Geller & Jack Kirby’s “LORD OF LIGHT” artwork is set to appear in color for the first time Heavy Metal #276, and to celebrate, we’re giving Comic Con attendees a chance to own a piece of history in bold psychedelic blacklight! These Pieces by Geller & Kirby, mostly unseen before now, are part of American history as they were the artwork used by the CIA for OPERATION: ARGO, which helped free American embassy workers during the Iranian coup in 1979. Each of these 14 prints was produced in an edition of just 50, and we are making a small number available for pre-order! This offer is exclusively for those attending San Diego Comic-Con. All orders can be picked up in person at Comic Con during all hours of the show at the Heavy Metal booth (#1529).
Heavy Metal would like to give special credit to Mark Englert, colorist and project manager, who made this happen.
Purchase of these prints is limited to one of each per person/household.
When the time comes—Monday, 10 AM, to be specific—these 8 posters and another 6 we’re not showing you (yet) will be available in the Heavy Metal Store!
