King Kirby podcast

 

The Midtown Comics Podcast is excited to bring its listeners a special gift just in time for Christmas! Introducing the first full-length audio recording of King Kirby by Fred Van Lente and Crystal Skillman!

This special recording features the original cast: Steven Rattazzi as Kirby (best known to comics fans as the voice of Dr. Orpheus from Cartoon Network’s The Venture Bros), is joined by a wonderful ensemble: Amy Lee Pearsall as Roz, Joseph Mathers as Joe Simon, Nat Cassidy as Stan Lee, and Timothy McCown Reynolds as the bosses in Kirby’s life.

King Kirby is a play by the husband-and-wife team of New York Times bestselling comics writer Fred Van Lente and NYIT award-winning playwright Crystal Skillman about the life and times of Jack Kirby, the great comic book artist who created or co-created some of your favorite heroes on the page and screen, including Captain America, the Avengers, Thor, Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Iron Man, Young Romance, the New Gods, Darkseid, The Demon… the list goes on and on.

From the Jewish ghetto of New York’s Lower East Side, to the battlefields of France, to the Senate hearings of 1950s, this is a hysterical and heartbreaking story about a man who pours his quintessentially Twentieth Century life into his comics, only to make the fateful mistake that sends him into obscurity while his creations become known to every person on Earth.

A real-life “Adventures of Kavalier & Klay”, King Kirby asks what happens when an artist doesn’t own his own legacy? Can he ever get it back?

For the first time ever, you can listen to King Kirby in its entirety exclusively on the Midtown Comics Podcast. This special episode will be released Wednesday, December 24th, just in time for Christmas! Consider it a free gift from Fred, Crystal, and your friends at Midtown Comics! In the meantime, you can listen to the previous episodes of the Midtown Comics Podcast here!

Fred Van Lente is the Harvey Award-nominated, New York Times-bestselling comics Incredible Hercules, Marvel Zombies, and Cowboys & Aliens, the basis for the feature film, as well as the American Library Association- and Xeric Award-winning Action Philosophers.

Crystal Skillman  is the award-winning author of Wild (IRT Theater/SanguineTheatre in NYC; Kid Brooklyn Productions in Chicago); Geek (Vampire Cowboys/Incubator Arts, NYT and TONY Critics Pick); Cut (The Management, New York Times Critic’s Pick); The Vigil or The Guided Cradle (ITG/The Brick Theater, NYIT Award Outstanding Play), Drunk Art Love (First Breath Reading Series, finalist for Harold Clurman Residency), and Another Kind of Love.
