Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)
It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.
Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.
Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.
And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.
A friend of mine on Facebook was outraged that President Barack Obama was going to miss the funeral for a high ranking general in favor of attending Michael Brown’s funeral. He quoted from an article which called Michael Brown a no good hoodlum who robbed a convince store.
I wanted to message him and tell him it is way more important for him to be at Michael Brown’s funeral but then the thought occurred to me that maybe I should slash his tires for being a racist douche nozzle.
If you take the side of an article that belittles and insults Michael Brown then you are awful and I want to vomit on you.
