Very happy to see Jack Kirby in the NYTimes on Sunday, and that the Masters of American Comics show has come to NYC; at the Jewish Museum and the Newark Museum (that's a pain, two different places). The Jewish Museum has a concurrent exhibition called Superheroes: Good and Evil in American Comics... Yay!
No Hal Foster or RF Outcalt, included... oh well, can't have everything. Versions of Outcalt's The Yellow Kid have shown up in my stuff... here and more literally here, for example. Kirby inspiration many many times.
Here is an interview with exhibition co-curator Brian Walker.
