SO WHY DID JACK QUIT MARVEL?

ITEM! Here’s another question your Uncle Stanley gets asked just about every time I show my fabulous fawning face in public: Why did Jack Kirby quit Marvel in 1970 and jump ship to the Doubtful Competition? In fact, I was recently asked this very question while visiting Google for one of their Authors@Google Series. And just how did Yours Truly answer that insightful inquiry? Well, it’s Honest Irving Forbush III to the rescue with one of those embedded YooTube dealies so that you, the discriminating Marvel Reader, can see exactly how I responded to this quintessential question!

Fantastic! Great clip of the real Stan, fake Stan.

Glad you enjoyed the clip, Robby! As to who's real and who's fake... since Yours Truly no longer has his own hair, teeth or knees, I'm as real as prosthetically possible. To quote the great Clint Eastwood as Bronco Billy McCoy (when asked if he was for real), "I'm who I want to be!"

Ersatzior!
