Young Avengers, Powered By Kirby Engines

IMG_0020

Jorge Lucas may be doing his best Kirby Batman over at Batman Inc this week. But Young Avengers has a go as well. Not only do they do a great job of making sub text into text, then commenting on it, having teenagers feeling they are unable to go back home to their folks after being on a big adventure together, and then splitting a double page spread into panels formed by an exploding pentagram circle… but you also get jet engines powered by the imagination and named after The King. Haven’t seen those since the days of Grant Morrison and Marvel Boy. Good to see they are still around in Marvel NOW.

It’s really nice. A very sweet moment. Especially with what happens next.

Hold your hands if you believe in fairies. Or Jack Kirby. It’s the same thing.
