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.

Another sad anniversary in comics occurred this week. Jack Kirby passed away on February 6, 1994, at his home in Thousand Oaks, California. In this episode I will share a brief history of some of his work for DC Comics over the decades, and feature his work during the 1970’s. During this time he created the Fourth World mythology for DC. Other than co-starring Superman in the first issue of his title FOREVER PEOPLE, Kirby’s main work was on Superman was on the title SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN, from issues 133-148.Expanded show notes can be found at http://supermanfanpodcast.blogspot.com .
