The King of Comics
Who was the greatest comic book artist of all time? The first name that would come to my mind would be Jack "The King" Kirby. I've often thought it's too bad that there weren't more televised interviews of him. Then I discovered this -- an episode of a very strange television show from the early 90's. If you can get past the cheesy costumes and antics of the interviewer, you can see the longest interview of Jack I've ever seen, and also comments by comics creators about their feelings about his work. This is only one of three parts you can find on You-tube. If you're a Kirby fan, all three are definitely worth watching.
