HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE KING!

Today would have been Jack Kirby’s 97th birthday! And though that is, of course, a national holiday here on the nerd farm, we still couldn’t let the day pass without notice.

So HERE’S A LINK TO A NICE LITTLE PIECE ON THE DAY FROM NPR, who open with a tidbit of information that even hardcore funnybook fans seem to forget: Kirby created new move sensation Groot.

(Which, of course, is why I will not see Guardians of the Galaxy. No matter how well they’ve treated Bill Mantlo, creator of Rocket Raccoon, they still repeatedly went out of their way to screw over the man who created the furry bastard’s partner.)

But, hey! It’s the King’s birthday! So let’s not end this on a sour note. Instead, please enjoy this amazing machine-faced robot!
