Don't get high on your own supply.

Just got a big ol' box in the post with Mark Evanier's KIRBY: KING OF COMICS in it. If you were having second thoughts about buying this book due to the ropey looking montage cover, just go ahead and get it. It's fantastic. The art is well-presented, lovingly reproduced from originals (so you can see everything - pasted in lettering, brush marks, pencil tooth, the lot); the layout of the text is top-notch, and reads as well as you'd expect from so definitive a source; it's even printed on that lovely-smelling Munken paper.

There's even art in here I'd never seen before, and I've been reading THE JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR since its first issue, goddammit.
