I've never seen it. I have to turn in my nerd card, I guess. Good stuff. Of course, if Miller did it today in a crappy comic book like All-Star Batman and Robin, he'd say it was on purpose and was satire and we just didn't get it because we're tools.
Wow. A Jack Kirby post has been up for, what, hours, and no one is crawling out of the nerdwork to complain about Stan Lee?
Damn Stan Lee to several hells!
Stan Lee was the best part about the Hulk movie! Bless Stan, Curse Ang! (are they related?)
It isn't often that you get to see Cap demonstrating his devastating belly-bucking technique on-panel, drawn by Jack Kirby no less.
Ahhh. Nothing beats a healthy dose of Jack Kirby's Captain America! That reminds me, there's not enough A.I.M. in comics today.
A lot of people think that Stan Lee was responsible for the Dayton Accord that brought a degree of peace to the former Yugoslavia, but it was really Jack Kirby, who still hasn't received any royalty checks for the peace agreement. Man, FUCK STAN LEE!
Don't forget this one, which will be of particular interest to your British readers...I heard that Kirby actually discovered the secret to achieving world peace, but Stan stole it and destroyed it while Jack was pencilling Fantastic Four #78.
That is brilliant, Kelvin. I have that issue and I never noticed that.
Why is that a Kirby blunder?Stan did the writing, no?
Y'see, this here exposes the ignorance of today's youth.Cap'n America was a product of the forties. Back in those days, "walking under your own steam" was understood to refer to the coal-fired hearses so common in the streets in those days.As you all know, "to walk out" was a slang term for being carried in a coffin, as popularized by Bones McGinty's hit swing song, "To Walk Out Into My Swingin' Bees-Knees," which was the first and only hit to use the fluglehorn.So for a man of Cap's generation, "to walk out under your own steam" meant to be dead, doncha see.Which reminds me of the time I was in Shelbyville, and they showed me this newfangled thing. Y'see, I took the train there, back when the train was called an "iron magpie." Anyway, so I took the iron magpie to Shelbyville...
To anonymous, nowhere in the OP does it say it was a Kirby blunder. You inferred.
Harvey, you are high! "Walking out under your own steam" means just what it sounds like: leaving without any assistance. I think you're making that stuff up... (insert smiley face or something so this doesn't sound mean)
Does Homer like Kirby? Just listen."Mmmm. Square fingers."
1) I think Harvey knew he was making it up.2) Are we sure Stan "The Man" didn't dialogue after the fact and screwed the pooch, just like he screwed the money of Jack and Steve's wallets?
I have the one with the Voice and the Controller, and the one in the original post in an essential and no prize book.
I thought they changed the "and it won't be me" panel in the Essential collection?
There is no such thing as a Kirby blunder. There are only Kirby moments that we haven't evolved enough to understand yet.By the by, my verification bears a suspicious resemblance to "boy womb."
And yet, you somehow forgot to include this famous panel...http://tinyurl.com/cne84
Anon sez" Why is that a Kirby blunder?Stan did the writing, no?"Nope. I forget the exact issue, but I'm sure this here panel is from Kirby's seventies run on Captain America, which he both wrote AND drew, not the sixties run which Stan dialouged.
Isn't this the issue with the android assassin killing an LMD Nick Fury?Cap wasn't lying. He was out of steam after throwing that punch. =)
Kelvin, Sleestak please explain what is happening in that panel of yours. Cap throws his shield at a nameless thug/robot. And? Ah... 'WANK'
One of the fun aspects of the Essential volumes is going through and finding panels that just cause one to scratch their head in confusion. Like in the issue of Thor where the art shows him using his hammer to channel electricity from a down power line in order to free himself and Stan has the captions and dialog ignore that entirely so that Thor could "flex" his way out.
I don't think this is Seventies Jack, actually. So I'd go with blaming Stan, he made mistakes like this all the time.
Anon sez,"I don't think this is Seventies Jack, actually. So I'd go with blaming Stan, he made mistakes like this all the time. "Nah. Crap. you're right. It's Tales of Suspense 92.
Yeah, I thought so, 'cause it's not insane-looking enough! Also if you look at the lettering, that's a dead giveaway:Stan in the Sixties: "Only ONE of us is gonna walk OUT of here -- under his own steam -- and it won't be ME!"Jack in the Seventies: "Only ONE OF US is gonna WALK out of here -- under his OWN steam -- and it WON'T be me!"He wrote like he drew! Kirby rules. So out there.And look, as if by magic here's a good Kirby-style word-verification: "jamtokx"
the aftermath:...wait what did you say? You?!Cap: I mean... uh...(throws shield)WANK!verif:klsrci-the russian word for dipshit
