On this episode, Matt and Paul deep dive into the fascinating lecture that celebrates Kirby’s life and contextualizes his work within both the historical landscape and his career in the comics industry. The 2017 lecture from Palm Springs Comicon is a multimedia presentation by Illustrator and comic book historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), and you can watch the whole thing on YouTube right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwHBkpXnEhA ! Thanks again to number one fan of the show Jaems Murphy for pointing us towards this awesome lecture!
Also on the show, Matt and Paul discuss The treatment of Kirby at both Marvel and DC; understanding the context of the Fourth World; the many faces of Orion; the many genres of New Gods; the cosmetic benefits of a Mother Box; the arrival of Sonny Sumo; the uncomfortable racial stereotypes of comics from this era and much, much more.
