King Kirby is the story of the man who created the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Captain America, and more… and it’s the story of why most don’t know his name.

Kirby 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.
