READER Í By Kirby & Ditko ✓ Jack Kirby

G for his life The military wants to strip him apart and mankind doesn't understand him but in exploits crafted by two of the medium's greatest talents he'll still redefine humanity Few comic books were lucky enough to be graced by the work of Jack Kirby and Stev The sophisticated robot that yearns to be human is a common theme in science fiction and a decent premise for a comic book Jack Kirby freuently explored similar big issues in his work with entertaining results However the 1970's Machine Man series collected here left me disappointed I liked the Kirby art in the early issues but the stories were mundane standard superhero fare of the era Machine Man occasionally makes reference to his struggle to understand humanity and control his emotional impulses but mostly he just flies around punches bad guys and engages in typical superhero hijinks The usual seventies comic writing style also tends to slow down the stories Characters are unnecessarily wordy constantly narrating every action even though the reader can clearly look at the illustrations and see what is happeningIt could be enjoyable in small doses but as the series progressed I found my attention flagging I’d hoped for from big names like Kirby and Ditko but to me this has the feel of a very conventional monthly series churned out without much attention paid to the characters or story uality Maybe I expect too much from a 1970's comic but this was a letdown

Machine Man By Kirby & Ditko The Complete CollectionA military machine with a soul a thinking computer in the form of a man X 51 is the Machine Man Abel Stack gave a government created robot a human face nurturing the man inside the machine and calling him son But Stack's death left that son Aaron alone and runnin Jack Kirby did two different styles of work He either did incredible creative work that blows away all the comics art being done by his contemporaries or he did rushed thoughtless work that reveals how busy he was at the time Fortunately what you see in this volume is some of his best stuff I don't know what it is but I love the aesthetic he put into creating this character Machine Man just looks cool The second half of this volume is all Steve Ditko And most might disagree with me but Ditko's later Marvel work is just sad Childish and awkward It's too bad because there is so much great Ditko artwork out thereNow for the story it's practically unreadable Stilted awful dialogue and crappy formulaic stories Too bad the story can't mirror the talent seen in the art of those early issues
