Jack Kirby and the Marvel Movies


This short piece by Alex Chun on the late Jack Kirby's relationship to current Marvel movies ably demonstrates the feelings of disappointment by surviving family members. I would think a few more of these types of article are likely to appear this week. More cool Jack Kirby art on-line this week is probably a sure thing.

In a side note, I notice that Chun uses the $10 million figure widely reported for Stan Lee's recent settlement with Marvel. That is the figure we have, but there are reasons to be slightly doubtful concerning that number despite its wide currency. The figure comes from a Marvel assignment made near the time of the settlement, but the settlement could also include, for example, monies Marvel had earlier set aside to take care of the case. It could well be Stan Lee got more than what's been reported.
