A Jack Kirby Birthday Tribute Comic

  Quackenbush-CaptainAmerica Shawn Demumbrum writes;

Jesse James of Jesse James Comics and I have been working on a tribute comic to help support the Kirby4Heroes campaign to raise funds for the Hero Initiative in celebration of what would have been Jack Kirby’s 96th birthday.  We enlisted the help of comic book creators Eric Mengel and Denny Riccelli to help recruit artists to contribute their versions of Jack Kirby’s characters.  Jesse reached out to Jillian Kirby, founder of the Kirby4Heroes campaign and Jack Kirby’s granddaughter   She was enthusiastic about the project and agreed to pick out the cover image for the book out of all the contributions.  We are ready to reveal the cover that Jillian pick out of the 20 submissions.  The cover will be Ryan Quackenbush s Captain America double spread image.  Jillian had picked the image based upon the Captain’s shield, so it’s fitting that it’s the part of the image that appears on the front cover.
