Splash after splash after splash – you know we never get tired of them here on Mars! Today we transmit to you five splash pages from the first 7 issues of 2001: A Space Odyssey by Jack Kirby. If you don’t think Kirby was one of the most amazing visual artists of the 20th century, you either need to get hip quickly or go crawl back into your miserable hole!
Whoa! Sorry – that must have been the monolith talking! We’d never insult our Martian visitors like that. As an apology, please gaze upon the splendor of Jack Kirby’s brain-splitting artwork in the gallery below.
– From 2001: A Space Odyssey; Marvel, 1976.
