Back to the Drawing Board

A Kirby self-portrait originally published in New Gods # 6 (1984). The first image is a photograph of the original penciled image Jack gave to Greg Theakston as a wedding present (1983). The second image is a scan of the original artwork to the published version, featuring Theakston inks and colors on a clear plastic overlay (1984). For the third image, Mike Royer recreated the pencils and inked the image of Jack working at his drawing board (2004), later published on the cover of The Jack Kirby Collector # 45 (2006).
