“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

Of interest: 'Jack Kirby and the Auteur Theory of Comics'


An interesting discussion in the development of some of comic book, animation and cinema's best superhero characters. A comparison to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's storytelling method in the 1960's, to the Auteur- Directors theory of French Cinema. Very interesting in regards to the writer/artist collaboration/co-creation, by friend and author of 'The Silver Age of Comic Book Art', Arlen Schumer.
