Told in vivid graphic novel form by a groundbreaking Eisner-nominated comics creator, the long-overdue biography of the legend who co-created Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and many more superhero favorites.
Tom Scioli is a contemporary comics artist who gained prominence as co-creator of Godland, a Kirby-esque space opera which was nominated for an Eisner Award, for Image Comics. He next drew and co-scripted (with IDW editor-in-chief John Barber) Transformers vs. GI Joe. Recently, he wrote and drew "Super Powers," a series of short comics appearing in DC's experimental imprint Young Animal. He also recently completed a modern reimagining of Go-Bots for IDW. He is known for his unconventional drawing style, dense page layouts, and imaginative writing. He's one of a small number of mainstream comics creators today who writes, draws, colors, and hand-letters his work.
"Jack Kirby's real life adventures were just as epic as the ones he imagined in the comics he created. Scioli captures that epic feel using his own, inimitable style, and tells a story that's long overdue."--Joe Casey, co-creator of Godland
