Jack Kirby's 96th Birthday

Taking a break from our Medusa marathon to post a belated commemoration of Jack Kirby's birthday. As I'm sure most of you already know, on this past August 28th he would have been 96.  By now you've probably read the wonderful tributes; but if not,  Heidi MacDonald's and Tom Spurgeon's are good places to start.

Here, a few of my favorite faces by the King:

As many have noted, here Reed seems to be a Kirby self-portrait.
