Jillian Kirby, Jack’s granddaughter, founded KIRBY4HEROES to honor the legacy of Jack “King” Kirby in a manner that he would have been proud of. This was also a way for Jillian to meaningfully connect with her grandfather, who died the year before she was born.
We agree with Jillian that her grandfather would have been among the first to champion this cause, because a charity that helps others in the comic book community and gives aid to those in need exemplifies the devotion he always had for his fellow man.
The Hero Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators, writers and artists in need.
Please consider donating at our collection jar in the shop this month to help celebrate this amazing man and make a difference. Thanks!
