Giving Credit Where Credit’s (Long Past) Due

From the title page of today’s new issue of Fantastic Four:

Kirby Credit

Yes.

Yes, they were.

Bout damn time they acknowledged it, too.

 

(Sorry that’s not ten times bigger and high-def. I’m not actually buying the current lousy-ass FF run, so I couldn’t scan it in myself.)

(And this doesn’t make up for the many, many slaps in the face delivered to Kirby when he was still alive, either. As Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s publisher figured out over 30 years ago, credit costs them not a penny. But it still feels good to see it in print. I mean, after all…)
