1 2001: A Space Odyssey #5
2 Kamandi #29
3 Fighting American #1 (1966)
4 DC First Issue Special #6: The Dingbats of Danger Street (1975)
5 Black Magic #1 (1973) (unfortunately, I've never read the comics the 70's Black Magic comics were reprinted from... the not-Kirby cover for this comic pales in comparison to the decidedly pre-code one he did for the same story on the original series Black Magic #30 from 1954)

Buzz Dixon

1. Fantastic Four #48
2. Captain America Comics #1
3. Devil Dinosaur #1
4. Fantastic Four #51
5. Destroyer Duck #5 (This one deserves an explanation: My first comics gig was writing a two-page fight scene for this issue, a hand off from Steve Gerber to get my feet webbed [...er...wet] before taking the book over with issue 6. My first pro gig and it was illustrated by Jack Kirby! You can't start a career in comics better than that!)

* Black Magic #27. 'The Cat People' is the epilogue to producer Val Lewton's classic film of the same name.
* Bullseye #3. 'The Devil Bird' puts our western hero in 'The Valley of Gwangi'.
* Fantastic Four #40. It contains in my estimation Kirby's best single page - the heartbreaking transformation of Ben Grimm back into The Thing. It can't even be diminished by Colletta's inks.
* Fantastic Four #67. The coming of 'Him' is an underrated Sci-Fi epic in Kirby's deep repertoire of great stories, and puts Alicia front and center as a heroine.
* X-Men #10. Our mutant-heroes in 'The World That Time Forgot'; helped put me on my career path. One of the next dinosaurs I name will be named after Kirby.

unless you were a first-time participant, for which I'm always super-delighted, I deleted responses that came with choices that weren't comic books
