Thrill at the Kirby Silver Surfer/Galactus poster. Scratch your head at the Black Knight’s.

June 9, 2013


If someone knocked on my door — perhaps some grimy GRIT-ish urchin — and offered me the Galactus poster, I’d find it hard to resist. The Fantastic Four and Thor posters less so, but still, the temptation would be there. These are Jack Kirby posters we’re talking about here, people. AND THEY’RE THREE FEET TALL. Was there a great Black Knight groundswell, though? Ever? One gets the feeling that the only way his poster ever moved was in the Marvelmania package deal with its neighbors.

Should I ever get married, that SS/G number is going to be on a registry somewhere — to be placed right next to the ASM #33 print. And if the future missus balks, she will not be the future missus.

    I remember this ad. I’ve got some Kirby stuff on my walls, and I would be a proud pup to have any of these….although, I admit, the Black Knight poster along side these others makes me scratch my head. It looks beautifully rendered, though.
