    Black Kirby is a collaborative entity that is the creative doppelganger of artists designers John Jennings and Stacey Blackstar Robinson The manifestation of this avatar is an exhibition and catalog of primarily visual artworks on paper that celebrate the groundbreaking work of legendary comic creator Jack Kirby regarding his contributions to the pop culture landscapeBlack Kirby is a collaborative entity that is the creative doppelganger of artists designers John Jennings and Stacey Blackstar Robinson The manifestation of this avatar is an exhibition and catalog of primarily visual artworks on paper that celebrate the groundbreaking work of legendary comic creator Jack Kirby regarding his contributions to the pop culture landscape and his development of some of the conventions of the comics medium Black Kirby also functions as a highly syncretic mytho poetic framework by appropriating Jack Kirby s bold forms and revolutionary ideas combined with themes centered around AfroFuturism, social justice, Black history, media criticism, science fiction, magical realism, and the utilization of Hip Hop culture as a methodology for creating visual expression This collection of work also focuses on the digital medium and how its inherent affordances offer much flexibility in the expression of visual communication and what that means in its production and consumption in the public sphere In a sense, Black Kirby appropriates the gallery as a conceptual crossroads to examine identity as a socialized concept and to show he commonalities between Black comics creators and Jewish comics creator and how they both utilize the medium of comics as space of resistance The duo attempts to re medicate blackness and other identity contexts as sublime technologies that produce experiences that sometime limit human progress and possibility Black Kirby is funky brilliance, the kind that makes you scrunch up your nose, screw up your face, and involuntarily mutter aha Regina Bradely, African American Literature, Armstrong State University

    1. Black Kirby is filled with complex, dynamic, powerful, angry, humorous and extraordinary artwork The art is a reimagining of the style of iconic comic artist Jack Kirby, but reconfigured with black characters, so notably absent from comic books for the most part until recent years The book is also filled with essays talking about this history of absence and erasure John Jennings and Stacey Robinson are the dynamic duo of artists behind the work, which was shown in a series of exhibitions in 2013 [...]

    2. I won this book in a drawing.This is an art book that asks the question, What if comic book legend Jack Kirby was Black They give many of Kirby s characters Africanized features.There is an artist s statement accompanying the art, but I never believe an artist s statement.Some of the art is pretty good, although the theme becomes repetitive and palls a bit by the end.If you want to see a talented African American artist doing homage to Jack Kirby, search out Xal Kor the Human Cat, by the late Gr [...]
