"I think Kamandi was inspired by the popularity of Planet of the Apes, but according to Mark Evanier Kirby had not seen the movie prior to creating the Kamandi comic book series. I think I can relate the gist of Gibbons’ story I mentioned above…"

"I don't know that one. I'll be interested to hear what it was. An interesting thing about Kamandi is it was obviously prompted by Planet of the Apes, but drew on work Kirby had done before the movie came out: his unsold Kamandi of…"

"Thanks, Ronald. I don't know what that story might be. This story is from Alarming Tales #1 (Harvey, 1957) also. Scans in this and the previous post from Comic Book Plus. The DC Timeline says Kirby created "the DNA Project,…"

"You're right. I guess they can't interfere with the scripts. The comic store and the apartments always have DC, Vertigo, and other DC imprints in view. I'm pretty sure no other companies are shown on camera. "

"They talk about the Marvel super-heroes quite a bit, but pretty much all of the comics in the comic shop are DC (I've seen some Dark Horse stuff in there as well)."

"If you’ve never had the opportunity to see a page of original Kirby art, “Artist’s Editions” are the next best thing, and IDW has released two Jack Kirby ones featuring the Fantastic Four this year. The first one came out in…"

"Here are three items from Win a Prize Comics #1 and #2 (Charlton, 1955). I've put the story from #2 first because it's a better introduction to Uncle Giveaway. I've made the thumbnails small to hide the story's twist ending. Try…"

"This is a story from Black Cat #30 (Harvey, 1951). The GCD doesn't record Kirby has having contributed to it, but I think he must've. His style is particularly apparent on the last two pages. The catch is the story reminds me of…"

"Since Big Bang Theory (which I love) is a Warner Bros show, you will never see anything but DC books, statues, etc."

Intro (lite)

It's actually -3-, not 3. But the system does not compute that.

-3- is how i'm credited in my works for the last 20 years. And yes, that does make it pretty hard to find me since the '-' at the beginning tells search engines to ignore what follows.

That's okay. I'm a hermit and retired. Trying to come out of the cave a bit, though. Starting to blog again, showing up here... basically imitating a real person. But No social media. Only do antisocial media. It's in the hermit guild bylaws.
