Too bad Jack is not around to see the way comics have been accepted by mainstream popular culture.

I still remember the Superman:TAS where they killed off Turpin and did a black screen Kirby tribute. You knew right then and there Bruce Timm and Company got it. I kinda glad he didn't live to see Final Crisis, but I am sure JLU would have made him smile.

I wonder how he would have felt about the Fantastic Four movie? I'm torn on whether he would appreciate seeing it in some form on the big screen (and hopefully getting some scratch outta the deal), or being horrified at how much was changed from what he and Stan came up with (or what Jack had come up with if you listen to a lot of the staunch Kirby-philes).

CNN (cnn.com) is reporting that one of my all time favorite writers, Stanislaw Lem, has passed away. I was probably 10 or 11 when I found a copy of Solaris in my dad's library and was absolutely blown away by it.
