Jack Kirby: A Personal Journey

Glenn B. Fleming has hot Kickstarter for funding for his movie Jack Kirby: A Personal Journey which features unique, unseen footage. This is Glenn’s journey to find Jack Kirby; artist and co-creator of so many iconic comic book characters.

“2017 marks the centennial of American comic book artist and writer Jack Kirby’s birth. Kirby created (or co-created) most of the iconic characters we continue to see in comics and on film today; Captain America, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Nick Fury, X-Men, Galactus, the Silver Surfer, the Black Panther, the Mighty Thor, New Gods, Mister Miracle, Doctor Doom and many, many more.

Almost thirty years ago, following a chance encounter, I found myself in California, sitting at the King of Comics dinner table, in total awe and almost total silence. Jack and his lovely wife, Roz, invited me into their home, fed me, catered to me and generally took care of me for those precious few hours. I felt like family. I felt at home. They were open and warm, friendly and generous, not only with their hospitality and time, but with their answers to my many, many questions; Jack and Roz even allowed me to open packages of recently returned artwork, some of which had not seen the light of day for over 25 years; I held several ‘classic’ pages of ‘New Gods’ and the ‘Fantastic Four’ (amongst others) in my bare hands. Moments I will cherish and remember forever.

Three years later, I returned to the Kirby home and was able to record part of that meeting. This film has never before been seen in its entirety and serves as an historical document, showing Jack Kirby in his own home, in his own studio, talking about his own life, in his own words.

This footage is unique; my only regret is that I cannot return and have further conversations with this genius, if only to record more of his stories and experiences. Still, I have my memories of those hours and I’d like to share all I can with as many people as possible through this film.

Thank you for your support in making this film possible, and many thanks to Kickstarter for allowing me to post this unique film on their website.”
