Jack Kirby Museum

The Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center, honoring the comic illustration legend, has officially launched online. It's in the early stages, but I'm excited about the possibilities.

The Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center is organized exclusively for educational purposes; more specifically, to promote and encourage the study, understanding, preservation and appreciation of the work of Jack Kirby by:

* illustrating the scope of Kirby's multi-faceted career,
* communicating the stories, inspirations and influences of Jack Kirby,
* celebrating the life of Jack Kirby and his creations, and
* building understanding of comicbooks and comicbook creators.

To this end, the Museum will sponsor and otherwise support study, teaching, conferences, discussion groups, exhibitions, displays, publications and cinematic, theatrical or multimedia productions….

The Kirby Museum's long-term plans include a major travelling retrospective in 2007, a documentary, and more.
