CA – Hand of Fire Signing

Comments Off

Author Charles Hatfield signs at Collector’s Paradise on Saturday May 26, 2012 from noon to 3:00pm.

About the book:

Jack Kirby (1917-1994) is one of the premier storytellers and visual stylists, for some readers the premier artist, in American comic book history.

For more than forty years, Kirby worked steadily at comics, in particular the comic book—that roughly half-tabloid-sized, newsstand-ready magazine which for many readers still represents the kernel identity of American comic art. Kirby entered the comic book field when it was newborn, and excelled in it. With his dynamic, eccentric style, he left a deep and unmistakable handprint on both the medium and the industry that grew up around it.

Over those forty-plus years of almost uninterrupted artistic output, Kirby—his work, his style, his name—became part of the very atmosphere breathed by comic book creators and fans. That’s why “Kirbyesque” has become a familiar adjective, and why so many artists continue to work in his shadow.

Charles Hatfield’s Hand of Fire: The Comics Art of Jack Kirby is a book about what Kirby did and why it matters. In particular, it focuses on Kirby’s artistic peak in the 1960s and ’70s. A critical exploration of cartooning, of superheroes, science fiction, and the technological sublime, Hand of Fire is the first academic monograph in English about Kirby’s work. In essence, it’s a book about why Kirby blew off the top of so many readers’ heads, and why he still does. Scholar Ian Gordon calls it “the single most important scholarly book on superhero comics hands down.”

Hand of Fire is part of the University Press of Mississippi’s “Great Comics Artists” series. It’s available now in softcover, hardcover, and Ebook formats, including Kindle and Nook.
