Where did Kirby-Krackle come from? Thor? Galactus? Black Panther? Hulk? The Avengers? Perhaps in 1943 when a machine gun was staring at his face, and he was about to die, the only thing Jack Kurtzberg from the Bronx could do is Fire! Fire! Fire! until he and his men were once again safe and the humans in front of him were dead. Michael Royer and Barry Ira Geller will discuss the continuous stream of Jack Kirby's Gods who have been fighting evil to the death throughout Jack's career-as if Jack was still fighting WWII. How had all this led up to Jack Kirby working with Barry Ira Geller in 1979? They'll also talk about how the drawings they designed together for Geller's proposed film of Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light and the theme park Science Fiction Land became the basis for the real CIA Mission ARGO, which saved six Americans' lives!
