Jack Kirby, the "king" of American comic books and comic strips as an artist, writer and editor, was born Jacob Kurtzburg on August 28, 1917 in "Hell's Kitchen," in New York City.  His career began in 1935 as an illustrator for Max Fleischer's animation studio. A year later, he was creating "Abdul Jones", "Socko the Seadog" and the "Black Buccaneer" for the Lincoln Newspaper Syndicate, until 1938 when the company went out of business. Briefly with the Eisner-Iger studios in 1939, he worked (showing 500 of 6385 characters).
