Thankful Bun Toons! (Featuring Jack Kirby!) YAY!

It’s Thanksgiving Sunday in Canada. We do it first, and we do it best.

Today is the day we sit back and give thanks whilst devouring birds and hogs across this fine land (or steamed legumes for our less fortunate, vegetarian brothers and sisters).

It’s not celebrating a past dinner with local natives, or  Canada or anything in particular, but it allows us all to take a moment and be thankful for things.  Me, I’m thankful for art – from the defining genius and courage of Picasso, to the instinctive genius of Jack Kirby, I thank the universe for it all the art it sends my way.

And that got me thinking.  Who was the true KING ARTIST of the long-gone  20th Century?   I can’t decide between Kirby and Picasso, and today we get to hear what they thought of EACH OTHER.

This special Bun Toon is comprised entirely of actual quotations found in different interviews with both Jack Kirby and Pablo Picasso, when the subject of their counterpart came up in the conversation.

I’m also thankful for modern medicine and Big Bird, no matter what his ultimate fate may be.   But I only have time to Bun Toon about one of my favourite things.

Ty the Guy OUT!

And now, your TWO (2) AMAZING Kirby/Picasso BONUS moments:

No.#1:

Because the internet has one of everything on it.

The above Picasso/Thor image came from here.  Go look, there’s a ton more super-hero Picasso works over there.

ACTUAL COMICS BY PICASSO:

Panel six is where Lucy pulls the football away.  Click on it to enlarge.

(And hey, if anyone wants to re-post The Bun Toon above, do me a favour, and link back here instead of just posting the full toon…the joke needs the prose  intro to set up the joke properly.  

Thanks,

Saving-my punchline-Ty!)
