Countdown to Halloween: Jack Kirby's Monsters! Night Two: When you see him, say a prayer and kiss your heart goodbye

Hey, who's this dude? What's his story? What's he all about?


Panels from "Alien on Earth!" in Journey into Mystery (1952 series) #51 (March 1959), script (?) and pencils by Jack Kirby, inks by Christopher Rule, colors by Stan Goldberg, letters by Artie Simek

What's a-goin' on here, dude? What's your major malfunction? (Besides phonics.)


What do the intelligentsia, Les Fran├žais, those dirty commie Russkies, and…I don't know, Alfred Pennyworth and that one guy from Ghost Hunters...all think about him?


Well, I don't know what the heck that thing is...you kids, don't put your lips on it!


Oh, let's just do to it what we do to everything. Let's blow that sucker up with a nuke! Yee-haw!


Oh, say! Turns out he was smarter than us. Well, that'll happen. Wah-wah-wah-wahhhhhhhhhhh!


Join us tomorrow when we prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that...Jack Kirby has seen the motion picture King Kong!

Rggf--prxno--bzny--English translation: I'm sorry. I'm a confirmed Kirby Monster fan, but this guy is just plain silly-looking.
