Superman and Boom Tube (after Kirby)

Superman and Boom Tube (after Kirby). 2012.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

I assume everyone on earth will probably be seeing Avengers today, so here's a character you won't be seeing in the movie. What you will see is the creative force of Jack Kirby "krackling" throughout. That level of action and power didn't exist before Kirby put pencil to paper, so remember where it came from. The man was a walking Tesseract.

  1. I always loved boom tubes.

    Great painting! Love those color transitions, even in that much light.

  2. Love the True Kirby Superman face, the one commonly pasted over by editorial to keep Superman "on model". Ludicrous.

    1. Ludicrous, indeed. Makes me appreciate my own editors.
