    When you see the costume designs of Galactus, Eternals, Infinity Man, Mister Miracle, New Gods, Celestials, etc, you'd think Jack Kirby has a unique fashion sense.

    Anyways I think my favorite Jack Kirby creation is Silver Surfer

    The big thing I have with Jack Kirby is how I think his work and style is like a shorthand or blueprint for what comics could be.

    Like from the first time I'll have seen stuff of his there'll have been such attraction to it.
    A succinctness, or no-nonsense full-on-ness to it.
    Like for going: yes!

    I think popular attraction along the vain of comics or illustrativeness would need to be self-explanatory, by experience, and all that.
    Like an excavation or exploration in reverse so to speak.

    As if stuff like Kirby is made for pointing out: this is fun and cool so see where it boldly goes from here, onto wherever.
    Boldly, buffly and succinctly, like an in-the-face tale, starting and holding its course onto being but the most enticing, maximally.

    The first ever drawing by Kirby will have been something with Fantastic Four's Thing in there. Or X-Men, maybe, but likely those would get drawn by others. Captain America I feel won't have been as commonly seen in my native surroundings, or at least he would play second fiddle to Thor for instance.
    But I voted for Kamandi.
    I haven't even read that yet, but I like the cover of him peddling past the Statue of Liberty, eventhough if Kirby wouldn't have drawn that cover I don't know I'd like it as much!

    I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Black Rider. The idea is just so out there, I love it.

    Would he be drawing stuff to wear, or would everything to his designs be for creating graphical enticement most primarily? I'd think it'd be the latter.

    I think Kirby was capable of merging what he himself could be to draw with whatever as being to suit reading entertainment most advantagiously. Plus he would incorporate any designs, even those of clothing or vehicles or objects, onto fitting within the graphical representation most advantageously just the same.
    Like one big string of butchness and effect and design, albeit as made for reading (graphically) at the same time.

    I've always had a special love for the Silver Surfer, and I've never completely understood why.
    I co-host a podcast about comics. Mostly it's X-Men comics of the 90's.

    The Silver Surfer is an interesting choice. We know Kirby created him without input from Stan in FF 48. But it was Stan and John Buscema that made the great Silver Age series with him. And did so portraying him in a different way than Jack intended, but making him a fan favorite.

    Captain America would be #1 for me, and gets my vote, but darn it if the FF isn't a close second

    For me, it's kind of like throwing darts at a dartboard, no matter where it hits, I will find a favorite Kirby creation. I think for sheer unadulterated Kirby, his 70s output shines, but his earlier stuff done mostly in some form of collaboration with either Joe Simon or Stan Lee is legendary. It's so hard to pick, but my dart landed on Kamandi this time. If I could vote each time I came to CBR, I would likely have a different vote each time, as there is so much that I love among his oeuvre.
