It's Honorin' Time!

With the new Fantastic Four movie coming out this week, Jack Kirby's name will be once again mentioned as co-creator of the book, along with Stan Lee. But, while Stan is around to receive the glory and a few bucks from it, Jack won't. When he finally left Marvel in the late seventies, he wasn't given funds for his work, nor the original artwork he drew when coming up with almost all of the charaters Marvel published in the sixties ( I may be wrong on some of the information, as it's Wednesday, I had dialysis and I'm still loopy. See Mark Evanier, who worked with Jack constantly or any of the other comic blogs linked here for more information). However after his passing, Jack finally has something Stan never had...His own museum. Now, that is an honor.
