I was invited to participate in KIRBY ENTHUSIASM, a gallery show honoring the late, great cartoonist, Jack Kirby, during New York Comicon. My piece celebrates my two favorite Kirby creations: The Thing and OMAC. For more details, please read below.

In the front room, artwork by illustrators, cartoonists and fine artists pays tribute to the man who created and co-created some of comics' most enduring characters as well as entire comic book genres and, most of all, an entire dynamic visual language!

WEEP featuring Doc Hammer of THE VENTURE BROS!
