Jack Kirby Named One of Comic Industry's Toughest Men

Was Jack Kirby the original One Man Army Corps

Shortly lafter landing on Omaha Beach in Normandy, Jack Kirby's commanding officer in the US Army discovered that King Kirby could draw, so he started sending Jack out alone at night to scout the terrain and draw maps of enemy territory.  Kirby readily volunteered to sneak behind enemy lines armed with his most dangerous weapon - a pencil and paper that he used to draw maps and pictures. 

And that's only one of the reasons that Gfest's friends over at Ty Templeton's Art Land named Jack Kirby one of the Top Comic Creators Who Can Kick Your Ass.  Check on Ty's site for the rest of toughest comic book creators in the business. 

It's a well done list and a funny read.
