79 YEARS AGO TODAY

Jack Kirby's first published comic book work was available in the stores.
Besides working for Lincoln Features in 1938, Kirby was also employed by Jerry Iger and Will Eisner's syndicate. His first assignments were Count of Monte Cristo (4 episodes or 8 episodes - it is a disputed point between historians), Diary of Dr.Hayward (12 episodes) and Wilton of the West (12 episodes).
Fiction House Publishing contracted Iger and Eisner's syndicate to supply material for JUMBO COMICS. They provided them with Kirby's Diary and Wilton, which Fiction House used in the first three issues of that title.
