They call him the king for a reason: Jack Kirby is most beloved comic book superheroes around. And now, a new graphic novel exploring his life wants to show you how he got there.

Being published by Penguin Random House in July, artist Tom Scioli’s biographical graphic novel Jack Kirby : The Epic Life of the King of Comics charts Kirby’s entire comics journey, from falling in love with pulp sci-fi as a child growing up in the Great Depression, to his early career in animation, and to his now legendary days at Marvel and eventually DC, helping fundamentally shape the superheroic pop culture landscape as we know it today.
