FANTASTIC FOUR Documentary (video w/ Jack Kirby art)

This is must-see for anyone who truly appreciates the history of comics and the pioneers of the art form and industry. Unless you’re very young, uninformed or simply live under a rock, then you know how special the collaboration between Stan Lee and Jack Kirby was most notably in the 1960s. The Marvel Comics of yesterday, today and tomorrow would not be possible were it not for they synergistic collaboration of those two men creator what we know as Marvel Comics (and movies and TV) today.

And I gotta say those images and pages of Kirby’s look so beautiful! I would love to have all 101 issues plus the annuals now. I had a few of Stan & Jack’s run as a kid, sprinkled in with the Silver & Bronze Age comics I’d acquired in the mid-1980s. At the time as a young teenager obsessed with comics, but all about the present offerings, I hadn’t yet possessed the proper respect and regard for the old stuff that I that I thankfully developed later in life.
