By Request Extra: Kirby Family Launchs Kirby4Heroes 2014


The Hero Complex blog at the LA Times features word from the family of the late Jack Kirby on this year's Kirby4Heroes campaign. That's a fundraiser they do with young Jillian Kirby as point-person to raise money for older creators in need; it's tied into the iconic cartoonist's birthday, August 28. There is mention of other celebrations happening that day, and a goal set of $15,000 raised.

I couldn't be happier that there seems to be a slowly developing movement to honor Kirby on his birthday, and to make that honor something that benefits older creators is a great thing for the family to be doing.
