As the gallery description notes, over the course of the next week we will post a-Kirby-a-day as we count down to what would have been Jack Kirby’s 95th Birthday: covers, comic pages and maybe some original art culled from sources and some excavated from deep in the REYES DESIGN archives.

Note: On Kirby’s drawing board he is rendering a page from an issue of his DC Comics series The New Gods (Orion at top panel left). LONG LIVE THE KING!
