29 Years Ago - No new Kirby for Christmas

Winter 1984 was a disappointing time to be a Kirby-loving kid. There hadn't been any new Kirby comics since August 1984 (NEW GODS #6 and SUPER POWERS #5) and there wouldn't be any until the third week of January with the release of WHO'S WHO #2 with its Kirby pin-up pages of Beautiful Dreamer,  Ben Boxer, Big Barda and Big Bear. 

Marvel did not release ANY Kirby comics, new or reprinted, the entire year of 1984.

  1. How strange! And yet, the X-men and other Kirby-created heroes and books were selling great guns!
