His artistry was, and remains, so innovative and influential in the comic book zeitgeist that the industry named awards after him. Heck, they even named a visual image after him: the affectionately known, “Kirby Krackle.”
How pervasive is writer and artist Jack Kirby in pop culture?
You can scan the litany of comic book characters that the man created or co-created and you’d be certain to find dozens that are your favourites. From the globally renowned Captain America, Avengers, Fantastic Four and X-Men series of characters, to the populace’s burgeoning awareness of Darkseid and Black Panther, to the more niche creations of Kamandi, Etrigan the Demon and Destroyer Duck. With Kirby, the list of great characters goes on and on and on.
Without him, pop culture and comic books wouldn’t be at all what we know it to be today.

Civil War II is not just happening in the core title this summer and autumn (and possibly into winter!), but also throughout the Marvel Comics line.

Meet me after the jump and I’ll be discussing Civil War II comics featuring Ulysses, Karnak, Doctor Doom, Nick Fury, and the Totally Awesome Hulk, among others.
In the third episode in a row introducing new Avengers, this one brings the Black Panther into the Marvel Animated Universe and the world of Avengers Assemble.

Marvel Comics’ Second Civil War continues this week with at least two comics, but is Marvel really all in on this event, or has it spread itself too thin with other current and upcoming events?
