Jack Kirby was an American comic book artist who is widely regarded as one of the most influential creators in the medium. He created (or co-created) many of the super-heroes who are experiencing success on the big screen today such as Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men and so many more. In his biography of Jack Kirby in his book Kirby: King of Comics, Mark Evanier writes, “Jack Kirby didn’t invent the comic book. It just seems that way…He was, in fact, a storyteller and innovator, first and foremost. A modern-day Aesop, creating myths and fables for the generations to come. After over fifty years in the field, he never ceased creating, nor did he show any signs of running out of ideas.”

I also felt a strong connection to the richly detailed figures in the Tarot. Now that I am older, I have more clarity in how these two subjects relate to one another. Let us explore these worlds of wonder together!
