GIVING KIRBY HIS DUE?


The Oklahoma Sooners take on the Clemson Tigers today and Marvel released an image of the teams fighting it out comic-book style.

The cover, which features a Clemson Tiger facing off against an OU pony (Boomer or Sooner, presumably), is a visual homage to Mike Zeck's cover for Captain America Annual #8, which featured Wolverine and Captain America. 

A cover was also released showing Michigan State and Alabama mascots battling; that cover is an homage to Jack Kirby's cover for Silver Surfer #4, which featured the Silver Surfer facing off against Thor.

  1. While Kirby created the Silver Surfer and co-created Thor, the cover of Silver Surfer #4 was by John and Sal Buscema.
    (Kirby only did the cover and interiors of #18, the final issue of the first series' run)
