When I first heard the superstar painter was tackling the lesser known legacies of Jack Kirby, I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. Firstly touching Jack Kirby's material is like covering a song by Queen - your intentions maybe great, but you can often end up messing with forces beyond your understanding.
Secondly, the projects success hinged on the interior artist. Alex Ross co-plotting and covers is one thing, but the interior artist needs to really evoke 'Kirby' to make KIRBY: Genesis feel like KIRBY: Genesis. Steve Rude springs to mind, but that's wishful thinking.
In short; if Kurt's name is on it, it's the closest thing to a 'guaranteed great read' you can find in this industry. Guess that means I'm picking up my first book from Dynamite Entertainment. How 'bout that?
