Jack Kirby now receiving credit in Marvel Comics
While the terms of last month’s settlement between Marvel and the estate of Jack Kirby—the legendary artist who created much of the Marvel Universe with writer Stan Lee—were never made public, it seems that its effects are starting to kick in. A number of Marvel comics available this week now credit the King of Comics in their masthead.
The change was spotted by Comic Book Resources, which posted the credits pages of a number of titles that featured characters co-created by Jack Kirby. As CBR notes, there wasn’t much in the way of fanfare—no announcement was made, and you’d totally miss the credit if you weren’t looking for it—but it’s there. And hopefully, it’ll always be there.
