The Fifty - Jack Kirby Captain America

"Hound Dog to Base. I've got a bogie!"

I got this Jack Kirby page years ago. I was extremely happy to pick it up even if it is not the most memorable page. It has so much Kirby in it that the rather pedestrian nature of the page is immaterial;it is a cool Kirby page. It is from an issue of Captain America (1976 I think) and is ably inked by D. Bruce Berry. I was getting a few pieces framed a month or so ago and decided that this page should be on the wall. That is all that needs to be said in the end...welcome to The Fifty to the King of Comics. And I ain't talkin' Johnny Carson here either!

The Fifty is really shaping up now. I have 22 pieces framed and on the walls at this point and really love the way the room looks. I will post a few shots of the room later this weekend but I want the Kirby piece to have its' due for a bit first. When I do post those shots you may notice a few framed pieces not yet announced for The Fifty; I do not frame a piece without believing it part of The Fifty but have made one exception - see if you can spot it when the time comes.
