The Facebook Comic Con...   Had its' Gala Premiere in mid-March of this year!

However, it didn't close down afterwards!  Indeed it is still going on with many comics creators having their Convention Tables open 24/7 !  Additionally there are still several 'Halls' where you can still see exhibits that were submitted.

During the Gala Premiere, one of the 'Halls' in the FBCC held a a special event in honor of the undisputed 'King of Comics'!

Facebook Comic Con was pleased to host a Jack Kirby-inspired Art Jam.   Stacey Aragon was the co-ordinator for this event, with Rand Hoppe the guest reviewer of the submissions.

They asked the following of those who wanted to join in the event.... "Help us in paying tribute to the man and the legend, by sketching your rendition of him and/or any Kirby created and/or co-created characters for inclusion in this special event. Renderings of other characters in Kirby's signature style are also welcome."

There were several submissions entered, but the two pictured above at the top of this blog post really grabbed me, because for me it is the 'Cover' of a comic or a magazine that will make me either pick it up to scan or just walk on by it for another...

2nd Illustration shown at top right of blog post (smaller) is...


"Back in '94 I was Central Mailer for the APAzine Alpha Omega. When the news of Jack Kirby's passing away reached me I was greatly saddened as all his fans were. I did a tribute cover for Alpha Omega based on the cover art for Captain America # 193 by Kirby and John Romita, which heralded Jack's return to Marvel in the mid '70's. On my cover, Cap is unmasked as Jack with Stan Lee as the Falcon over a Kirby Cover collage background."

1st Illustration Shown at top left of blog post is...


"I did another Kirby Tribute cover in the very next issue of the APAzine Alpha Omega #56 which was my inking over several separate Kirby pencil drawings which I made into a composite scene."

I appreciate Mark Poe allowing me to re-publish the two covers here, and invite you blog readers to check out the rest of the illustrations submitted to the Art Jam, by going to:
