In 1968, Stanley Kubrick changed the face of science fiction cinema. In 1976, Jack Kirby adapted it into a comic book?
Yes, and it is SO Kirby.
In this episode we are going back in time to read some of the Marvel licensed sci-fi comics that were already running the month that Star Wars #1 (cover date July 1977) hit shelves.
