“Jack Kirby’s 2001: A Space Odyssey comics were pure Kosmic Kirby at the top of his craft, expanding on the 2001 story in ways not even masters like Kubrick or Clarke could have imagined,” says Kirby Museum Acting Director, Rand Hoppe. “We can’t wait for fans to have their minds blown by the stories AND the visuals.”
If your in the NYC area you have to check out the “A Jack Kirby Odyssey” from May 11-13! It’s a celebration of the King of Comics’ pop-up exhibiting Arther C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey at One Art Space (23 Warren Street, NYC). It’s in celebration of the cinematic masterpiece with a giant reproduction, never seen before pencil art and multimedia presentations.
“The comics on display for A Jack Kirby Odyssey were painstakingly reproduced from the photocopies of Kirby’s pencil art,” adds Kirby Museum President, Tom Kraft. “The oversized comics at our Kirby 100 birthday celebration at One Art Space were big hits. We expect people will love seeing Kirby’s cosmic pencil art at large size, too.”
