California State University in Northridge opens an exhibition of artwork by Jack Kirby! This show will consist of roughly a hundred original artworks by the King, with a focus on his comics from the late 1960s and 1970s (but also including works from the 1940s-50s and the 80s). From The Fantastic Four and Thor to The Fourth World, Kamandi, 2001, and Silver Star, this show will capture some of Jack’s grandest themes and images. The exhibition will include two complete comic book stories, a great many more comic book pages and spreads, a handful of Jack’s signature collages, and a couple of images never published in his lifetime.
To celebrate the exhibition, CSUN will hold three special events within the Gallery. First will be an opening reception on Saturday evening, August 29—a chance to see and chat about the show in the company of other fans! Then curator Charles Hatfield, founder of CSUN’s popular “Comics and Graphic Novels” course and the author of Hand of Fire: The Comics Art of Jack Kirby, will host a gallery talk on Monday August 31st at 10am. Finally, there will be a panel discussion with artists and scholars on Saturday September 26 at 1pm. All these events are free and open to the public! More details are available at the link…
