We checked out the Jack Kirby Museum’s exhibit on the King’s adaptation of Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece! » Subscribe to NowThis Nerd: http://go.nowth.is/Nerd_Subscribe
When we think of Jack Kirby, we think of his contributions to superheroes, whether it’s through his Jack Kirby Marvel comics, his Jack Kirby DC comics, and his other work throughout the comics industry. But Jack the King Kirby can draw so much more than a superhero, and there’s no better example than his adaptation of the Stanley Kubrick science fiction masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.
2001 A Space Odyssey seems like a mismatch for the Jack Kirby art we know and love, but his adaptation remains a interesting part of Jack Kirby history and one of the most beautiful Jack Kirby comic books we’ve ever seen. At a pop-up exhibit curated by the Jack Kirby Museum, they displayed Kirby’s comic art in the best way comic book art should be seen: in giant size. From the monolith to Hal 9000, Kirby provided a very different vision of the Kubrick movie, but it’s no less valid than the 1968 masterpiece.
