New Yorker Copies Kirby ‘Tales To Astonish’ Cover Image?
According to Gawker, the New Yorker recently ran a cartoon that plagiarizes the very famous cover of Tales to Astonish by King of Comics, Jack Kirby. The too-cool-for-school blog asks, "Comic book geeks, your services are at last required. How obscure is this?"
On behalf of geeks everywhere, allow me to say, it’s not at all obscure. It’s one of the more famous images around.
