Jack Kirby: Architect of Science Fiction Land 
Comic-Con@Home 2021

James Daugherty – Zoom Panel Moderator, Graphic Design and Editor

Barry Ira Geller (Jack Kirby co-designer, Science Fiction Land, Lord of Light), brings together an intense team of creative professionals to explore the secret visual language inherent within all the architectural work created by Jack Kirby in 1978.

“He’d already conquered Comics and I called Jack up to draw Giant Buildings and Statues. Also to change the World.” Jack’s endless perspective-defying, internalized 3-D architecture is mapped by colorist Wally Anne Wharton, who discusses her coloring processes;

Gold Key Comics writer and Disney Pooh master Mike Royer, Jack’s favorite inker;

David Coons, developer of Disney’s direct scanning system which influenced all animation in the world and earned him an Academy Award;

Tom Kraft, digital re-constructionist of the Lord of Light negatives and president of the Jack Kirby Museum; and Brian Chidester, art historian, author, and documentarian currently completing As the Wind: The Enchanted Life of Eden Ahbez for HBO.

The panel discusses the experience of harvesting their amazement in the form of consistently floating 100 feet above buildings and walkways, statues, and ever-evolving powers coming from discovering the smallest underground people-filled passages–while being simultaneously transported a hundred feet in the air, looking up, looking down–all inherently intensifying these architectural rendered drawing which the new colors have brought out.

As co-creator, Geller worked with Jack Kirby, architect; Paolo Soleri, Architect, Don E. Broadbent of Westech Inc, 1979 Time-Life Books cited holographer; Ray Bradbury and Buckminster Fuller as Futurist consultants.
