Much like the artist himself, the art form (and the value in discussing it) is often underrated and overlooked. Channels such as Kirby Continuum collate and curate videos such as the documentary Jack Kirby: Storyteller which carefully examines Jack Kirby’s work and its undeniable impact of upon comics, its significant influence on pop culture, and the ways in which it helped reshape mainstream mythology in the 20th century.
