Hero Initiative's JACK KIRBY Tribute: Wake Up and Draw

Preview

The Hero Initiative, the charitable organization dedicated to helping comic book creators in need due to financial or medical hardship, knows how much Jack Kirby means to the comic book industry.

To celebrate Kirby's birthday on August 28, 2012, they recruited over 100 artists (plus more that joined in for fun!) to show off their skills in The King's honor by waking up and drawing. Most of the artists chose characters Kirby either created or made famous, and all put in some amazing work.

We pulled about half of the amazing tribute off the twitter hashtag #WakeUpAndDraw and collected them here.

Enjoy the art (starting with Alex Saviuk to the left), and make sure to check out HeroInitiative.org to see how you can contribute, and eventually how you can purchase this artwork through charitable auction!
