    I think that Jack's idea for the character was better, to be honest. Those Lee/Buscema Silver Surfer stories are very hard to read. The art looks great, but the scripting...bleh. Like a first year college student who discovered philosophy for the first time.

    For me it's a tie between Black Panther and the New Gods.

    I really don't think even Kirby knew what type of impact a character like Black Panther was going to have on black kids like myself. To see an African hero that is on the same tier as the greatest geniuses of Marvel, it was really inspiring. And I don't think another character would have appeared like that sooner or later.

    Kirby's Fourth World were the first time I saw something in comics that really took me aback. Something I had not seen in any other medium. Really jumpstarted my imagination.

    Maybe why they appealed to me as a young lad in 1968.

    Favorite character? I don't think it was his best book (though I do think his best stuff was his '70s work) but I have a real soft spot for Devil Dinosaur.

    Black Panther may be his greatest. My fav, oddly, is The Eternals. It's perhaps his boldest cosmic idea.

    The whole Norrin Radd add-on always sat ill with me. When I first read that Kirby envisioned SS as an artificial being, willed into existence by Galactus, I was like, "Stan! WTF were you thinking?!?"

    Well they were able to resurrect that idea with Him/Warlock.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!
