Guillermo del Toro Reminds Us: Jack Kirby Was The Greatest

Earlier today, director Guillermo del Toro launched into impromptu praise of the work and imagination of late comics legend Jack Kirby. In a series of tweets, the filmmaker expressed his admiration for the co-creator of the Marvel Universe, and other universes and characters across the world of comics.

“Jack Kirby, American. Zeus. Two-fisted titan of epic imagination and boundless power,” del Toro tweeted. “No one- ever- drew monsters like Kirby. Regardless of size, his creations had drama and style. Kirby Power. Kirby co created most of Marvel’s Cosmology. Gave birth to KAMANDI, DEMON and NEW GODS! No one drew heroes like Kirby. No one drew villains like Kirby. No one did Splash pages like Kirby. No one. We think we remember how incredible Kirby was until we re-read him and our minds are blown away- again.”
