There’s something very special happening over the next few days involving work by the late Jack Kirby and Heavy Metal—watch this space for more info on that.

UPDATE: Barry Geller and Jack Kirby’s “Lord of Light” Prints in the Heavy Metal Store!

To get you in that Kirby state of mind, we’re bringing you some classics of his published work, spreads from comics he produced for Marvel, DC, and Pacific Comics. Kirby’s over-the-top style of conveying action, architecture and the trippiness of the undiscovered universe was perfect for spreads. In the artist’s best years—the early- and mid-1970s—he created these dynamic two-page masterpieces that pushed the envelope way beyond his previous innovations. This was Kirby taking his own ‘roided-up visual language and then Kirbifying it even more.

These spreads come from the Jack Kirby Double-Page Spreads Flickr gallery, which has about 150 more.
