Those first five minutes of this blog's existence, during which it had a purpose, were marvelous.

ROZ KIRBY: Have you been satisfied with what you’ve done?

KIRBY: Have I been satisfied with what I’ve done?

GROTH: Yeah.

KIRBY: If I’ve done it myself, I’ve always been satisfied. If somebody interfered, it always created a bad period in my life.

GROTH: What was the most creatively rewarding period in your career?

KIRBY: I believe when I was given full rein on The New Gods. I was given full rein on The New Gods, and I was given full rein on Mr. Miracle. Mr. Miracle was a fine strip. I was given full rein on many other strips, which sold extremely well and made me very happy. I was happy doing them because as a professional, you’ve got to take the credit for it, or you’ve got to take the, beating for it. I don’t like to take a beating without being responsible.


GROTH: You don’t want to take somebody else’s beating.

KIRBY: I don’t want to take somebody else’s beating. That makes me unhappy. So right now, I can tell you, I’m a happy man because whatever I’m doing, I do for myself and I do a little creating here and there for others, and they work out very well. I feel like an independent man, and I am. This is the kind of feeling I always wanted. You can rarely get that… Well, I could rarely get that in the early part of my life.

GROTH: I think most people can rarely get that. You have to fight for it.

KIRBY: Yes.

Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived.

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.

kylelatino:

Today would have been Jack Kirby’s birthday, were he still with us.
I kind of turn into a blithering idiot when I talk about Jack, so I’ll be careful. I get very emotional about him and his work even though I didn’t know him personally, or even respond to his art until I was an adult.  When faced with the challenge of setting up this composition, I felt unequal to the task of drawing what Jack would draw, so I did what my four-year-old nephew would call “Drawing Energy.” Jack Kirby seems to stand for a lot, these days, but let’s all try to remember he was a human being with a family and a life too.
So, happy birthday, Jack Kirby. Thanks for comics.

If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.

Rape Is Hilarious: Donald Glover Edition »

I have a problem with Donald Glover. It revolves around that whole rape-as-a-punchline thing he does. I’m sure even as I type this that next to no one will give a shit and it’ll ultimately be swept under the rug as the Donald Glover…
