Born Jacob Kurtzberg in 1917, Bluewater Comics is now celebrating his life with their latest bio-comic “Orbit: Jack Kirby.” This new bio comic will highlight how an artist helped change the face of comic books. For almost three decades, characters were trapped within each panel, but Kirby’s cinematic style broke the boundaries of the sequential boxes, as he would use the whole page as his canvas. This style of graphic story telling would turn a fledgling comic book company into one of the most powerful companies in the world.
