Mister Miracle and Thor



There's a lot to love about the artwork of Jack Kirby - his action packed storytelling, his unending array of monstrous creatures, his mastery of the splash page - but for me the first thing that comes to mind when I think of his comic art is his machinery design.  Whether an object was man-made, mystical or alien, Kirby could make it look awesome and formidable through his imaginative illustrations.  His gadgets, weapons and vehicles were always larger than life and many are as fondly remembered as the characters themselves.
