It’s The King’s 100th Birthday this year, and Comic-Con is celebrating with a Kirby themed cover by Bruce Timm that references Kirby’s own Don Rickles cover because…circular portraits always work.
The cover will grace the annual souvenir yearbook, which will also feature:
The Comic-Con International 2017 Souvenir Book is given free to all attendees (while supplies last). It’s a keepsake, full-color, trade paperback. This year’s edition weighs in at 272 pages, making it the largest book ever produced for the event. In addition to an extended section celebrating the Jack Kirby Centennial, there’s a section on the Will Eisner Centennial, articles saluting other comics creators with special anniversaries in 2017, plus the 75th anniversaries of Crime Does Not Pay and Mighty Mouse; the 50th anniversaries of Batgirl and Marvel’s Captain Marvel; and the 25th anniversaries of Batman: The Animated Series and Image Comics.
