VIRGINIA BROWN, SWEAT LODGE VICTIM KIRBY BROWN'S MOTHER: On Friday, October 9, at 8: 15, a trooper came to our door to tell us that Kirby had passed at the sweat lodge in Sedona.
My recent reading has been just as scattered, but one book that has held my interest this past week is Mark Evanier's much-anticipated KIRBY: KING OF COMICS, a magnificently produced coffee table book about the art of the late Jack "King" Kirby.

Growing up on comic books taught me a lot of things, but lesson #1 was pretty much that the legendary Jack Kirby is the friggin man, and don't you forget it!
Rip Kirby is a more modern Thin Man, or what The Spirit would have been with a different upbringing in a very different part of the city.
Right now I just want to feel some comfort in knowing that Kirby is finally at rest, free of the body that was failing, after having lead a very full life.
Rachel Kirby is a computer genius whose personal life is hell.
The fellow in the beret next to Kirby is a third legendary figure of world comics, BTW!
