SF – Cartoon Art Museum Celebrates Eisner & Kirby

Press Release:

The Cartoon Art Museum celebrates Will Eisner Week and Jack Kirby: A Centennial Celebration on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 3:00 – 5:00pm at Mission: Comics and Art. Join us as we discuss the life and artwork of the legendary comic creators Will Eisner (born March 6, 1917) and Jack Kirby (born August 28, 1917). Bay Area comic creators Mark Badger (Batman, Julius Caesar), Al Gordon (Legion of Super-Heroes, Justice League), Justin Hall (No Straight Lines), Mario Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Steve Leialoha (X-Men, Fables), Trina Robbins (Wimmen’s Comix) and Judd Winick (Hilo) will discuss Eisner’s career and the impact that his work had on their own artistic endeavors. A book signing will immediately follow the panel discussion.

About WILL EISNER WEEK:
WILL EISNER WEEK is an annual series of celebrations that takes place in multiple cities, timed around Will Eisner’s March 6th birthday. Started in 2009, Will Eisner Week is dedicated to promoting graphic novel literacy, free speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner. This year Will Eisner Week is once again a truly international celebration including England, Scotland and Italy. More details about Will Eisner Week can be found at www.WillEisner.com

About WILL EISNER:

WILL EISNER was born William Erwin Eisner on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.

In a career that spanned nearly eight decades—from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics—he truly was the “Orson Welles of comics” and the “Champion of the Graphic Novel.” He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena and countless others. One of the comic industry’s most prestigious awards, The Eisner Award, is named after him. Recognized as the “Oscars” of the American comic book business, the Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at Comic-Con International in San Diego, America’s largest comics convention.

About JACK KIRBY:

2017 marks the centenary of the birth of JACK KIRBY, one of Comics’ greatest creators and visionaries and a man whose work, perhaps even more than he was alive, continues to inspire and amaze a worldwide audience, who may not know his name, but who love and are excited by his creations.

Jack Kirby was born as Jacob Kurtzburg on August 28, 1917 in New York City’s Lower East Side, a first-generation son of immigrants, who came of age in the melting pot of tenement life. He began his professional cartooning career simultaneously with the birth of the use of original material in the newest of popular media; the comic book.

Over Kirby’s 50-plus year career, working at all the major and many of the minor comics publishers, he created many of the comic book icons that continue to compel in print and on the screen; Captain America, the Newsboy Legion, the Fantastic Four, the Mighty Thor, The X-Men , The Avengers, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Silver Surfer, Nick Fury and the Agents of SHIELD, The New Gods, Kamandi, Mister Miracle, Captain Victory and legions more.

Jack Kirby, even after his death on February 6, 1994, continues to thrill, entertain and inspire readers, audiences and his fellow professionals and is, if possible, beloved more as an individual, than as the creative force singular in comics history.

Artist Kostas Zachopoulos appears at Mission: Comics & Art on Saturday, August 6 from 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM to sign his graphic novel The Cloud, newly translated and published by Archaia Entertainment.

“That is the question the boy must answer for himself as he and his wolf, Cloud, embark on a grand voyage to find the boy’s father and return the wish that was stolen from him. The Cloud is a beautiful, and at times, heartbreaking journey of a reluctant hero forced to outwit a cast of colorful characters: a thieving girl, bizarre creatures from the Great Before, and the Mad King. It’s a quest of self-discovery where the boy will learn that not all wishes can or should come true.
