With the collapse of comic books and their movie adaptations, it’s a wise time to reflect on how initially the genre became a beacon of mythical wonder for humanity. The main font is Jack Kirby. He created such hallowed characters as Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther, Captain America, the X-Men, the Eternals, etc. We explore Kirby's life, influences, and mysticism – including his Gnostic vision and cosmologies that remain today an influence on modern culture.
Astral Guest – Chris Knowles, author of The Endless American Midnight.
