Many recognize Stan Lee as the face of Marvel. Yet Jack Kirby is the one who did a lot of the hard work in creating such heroes as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, and Ant-Man. While Lee was the public face for what became the multimedia brand, Kirby’s legacy is relegated to the shadows. 

Much like Bill Finger of Batman and Gene L. Coon of Star Trek, this man doesn’t get enough credit. A man who gave everything to the comic book industry. This book hopes to shed some light on his life and career.

Bizarre Narration Spoils Decent Bio

This audiobook’s narration is totally bonkers. The narrator frequently makes LONG meaningless pauses in the middle of sentences. Is he turning a page? Is he drinking coffee? What is happening? Why did he stop? And why stop in the middle of a sentence rather than pause at the end? He then will cram several sentences together, ignoring periods entirely and reading very quickly like they are all one big sentence. The narration is so ramshackle it actually makes the text hard to understand. It’s almost worth it just to hear what is happening here. It’s unlike anything else. I wish there was an explanation. The book seems fine but the audiobook is a disaster.
