In celebration of what would have been Jack Kirby’s 97th birthday on 28 August, Sequart will be publishing content related to Kirby all this week.
Sequart uses themed weeks as a way of celebrating popular subjects, filling holes in comics and pop-culture criticism, and serializing in-depth criticism over a single week instead of many weeks (or even months). You can think of them as miniature conventions or conferences.
