Rice University Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts says
On the occasion of his 98th birthday, comic artist Jack Kirby will be celebrated with a display of his work at Rice University’s Comic Art Teaching and Study Workshop (CATS).

Wildly innovative, Jack Kirby is arguably considered to be the foremost comic book artist of his day. Although his work has generated more than three billion dollars internationally, Kirby is best known by the characters he created: The Avengers, Captain American, Iron Man, The Hulk, Ant-Man, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, Thor, and many, many more.

This display will present original art, as well as vintage comics, including an original drawing by Jack Kirby and an original drawing by his contemporary and peer, Curt Swan. These original comic book pages date from the 1970s and present iconic characters for which both artists are renowned. The Kirby drawing is from his book The Demon, published by DC Comics, while the Swan drawing is from the pages of Action Comics, and depicts Superman and members of the Justice League.

These materials will be on view September 24 - December 1, 2015. Viewing hours are from 7 to 10PM during the opening reception on September 24, and thereafter by appointment only.

This exhibition marks the launch of The Comic Art Teaching and Study Workshop, a project by Associate Professor Christopher Sperandio and the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts to bring original art, comics and scholarly publications together as a resource for Rice students, faculty and staff. This new, 270 square foot hybrid classroom/exhibition space is located in Sewall Hall, Room 417.
