Shadow Spotlight: Jack Kirby

December 5 / 16 Hello and Good Morning! Again, since this month will be short, for the next few weeks, I will be cramming lots of things in. The late Jack Kirby is this month’s Shadow Spotlight. With Captain America, the Fantastic Four, X-Men, and the Hulk, Kirby is pretty much a comic legend. Not only with Marvel, but also DC.  I found a documentary film about the man. It’s a five-part documentary, but this will give an insight into who this man was and how much of an influence he was and still is to the comic book world. … Continue reading Shadow Spotlight: Jack Kirby

Film Review: I Saw the Light

November 20 / 16 “You got to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly.” Hank Williams What word do I use to describe Hank Williams? A musical genius? A true songwriter?
