Download Episode 34!

Jack Kirby (Jacob Kurtzberg) was born on August 28, 1917 and died on February 6, 1994. In episode #4 we explored the comic book career of Jack Kirby in general. In this episode I want to explore some of the characters that Kirby created in the only regular Superman title Kirby worked on, SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN. Kirby’s first issue was 133. In that issue we are introduced to Project Cadmus.
If you would like to read Kirby’s Jimmy Olsen issues before you listen to this podcast, those stories have been collected in the trade paperbacks, JIMMY OLSEN ADVENTURES by Jack Kirby VOL’s. I and II.
