Tales To Astonish HC
By Ronin Ro. For 50 years, Jack Kirby drew more pages than any other comic book artist. As talented as he was prolific, Kirby was responsible for many of the most well-known and beloved super-heroes in popular culture. In Tales to Astonish, Ronin Ro chronicles Kirby's poverty stricken origins in the Lower East Side, his early commercial triumphs and failures, his renowned partnership with Stan Lee, his continuing artistic innovations, and his lengthy battles with Marvel Comics over the ownership of his original art. An insightful portrait of one of it s most enduring - and overlooked - artists, Tales to Astonish is also a lively, novelistic account of the comic book industry, from its inauspicious origins to its sensational successes. HC, 6x9, 304pg.
