Jack Kirby Poster Preview! Check Out These 8 Black-Light Beauties, Available Soon!

Jack Kirby Lord of Light

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!

  1. It's a bummer these aren't available to the general public.

  2. Based on the novel "Lord Of Light" by Roger Zelazny. One of the great innovators and influences to modern Sci-Fi whose name and works seem to be slipping through the cracks of pop culture a bit more than they should.

  3. these saturated colors recreated are just horribles, and also flattened the compo!! it should not be authorised to deteriorate to this point the work of kirby

    I was at Comic con San Diego & these blacklight prints were among my favorite! Please let me know when they are available on the Heavy Metal site. Would like to buy one of each.

  5. […] Heavy Metal issue #276 is now on sale, and as promised, boasts the art in full-color glory. You can also find out more about Lord of Light right here. […]
