In 1982, comic book legend Jack Kirby was labeled a "con man" on national television, by a world famous comedian! Only this was no joke.
It all started when Jack and Ray Zone did a 3-D comic book called Battle for A Three Dimensional World.
Like many 3-D books, the comic came complete with its own set of 3-D glasses. The glasses had some art from the book printed on the frames, along with the credit "Designed by Jack Kirby, King of the Comics."
The show began, as usual, with Ed McMahon announcing, "HEEEEEEEEERE'S JOHNNY!" When Carson came out and put on the 3-D glasses, the audience roared. The Ed told Johnny to read what was Xprinted on the inside of the glasses.
He did, and saw the credit on the right: COLLECTOR'S GLASSES DESIGNED BY JACK KIRBY "KING OF THE COMICS."
Carson associated the term "comic" with "comedian." Johnny knew plenty about comedians, and he had never heard of any comedian named Jack KIrby. So Johnny said, "Who is Jack Kirby? He's king of the con men as far as I'm concerned."
I happened to be watching The Tonight Show on the night this happened. At first I was thrilled when Jack got mentioned, but then Johnny called him a con man. I loved Johnny and watched his show every night. I knew he was speaking out of ignorance, so I couldn't hate him. Besides, comics had been dumped on for decades by the whole world. All comic fans were used to that. What was one more swipe?
But according to Mark Evanier, Jack was watching that night, and Johnny's words upset him greatly. Kirby had his lawyer, Paul Levine, contact The Tonight Show, to demand a retraction, and threaten to sue them for libel. Evanier also spoke with Carson's producer, Freddie DeCordova, who suggested he write Johnny a letter. He said he'd get Johnny to read it on the air. Two weeks later, after Johnny returned from an extended vacation he apologized. Carson said, "I have to start with an apology tonight, and I mean sincerely...we don't know as much as we might think. Mr. Kirby is the "King of Comics" because he created or co-created such classic comic book characters as The Hulk, Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, and many others. As a matter of fact, the main records book on comic history, The Steranko History of Comics is dedicated to Jack Kirby. We are very sorry."
I saw this show too. It was a wonderful moment for comic fans across America, with one exception: Kirby co-created Spider-Man? Sigh. They'll never get it right, I thought. Then Johnny went on to say that the situation had been explained to him in a letter from Mark Evanier, and noted that Jack Kirby had recently been honored at the recent American Booksellers Convention, held in nearby Anaheim, California. According to Evanier, Carson also sent Jack Kirby the most sincere form of apology imaginable, a check for a considerable sum.
It was a happy ending, but Jack never really got over the incident. It wouldn't have happened to the boisterous, highly-visible Stan Lee! "If you don't fill in the word balloons," Kirby once said, "They don't give you credit for anything."
Rare Murders in the Rue Morgue Lenticular Light Box Comes up for Auction
This backlit Phantom of the Rue Morgue 3-D lobby display was created by Warner Brothers for the 1954 horror film starring Karl Malden, Claude Dauphin and Patricia Medina. Although movie-going audiences had been treated to the occasional stereoscopic film, the period from 1952 through 1955 is generally considered the Golden Age of 3-D movies, with this piece coming from the height of that fondly-remembered era. The piece includes a metal light box, which is attached to the framed image.
A Phantom of the Rue Morgue display is currently up for auction at Bruce Hershenson's eMovieposter website. One of these came up for auction in 2008 and it sold for $657.25 with six bids.
Hershenson's site also has several rare 3-D related movie posters for sale include one sheets for the 1955 Revenge of the Creature and 1953 It Came from Outer Space, 1954 Creature from the Black Lagoon and 1955 Revenge of the Creature window cards, six 1953 It Came from Outer Space lobby cards, a lead print block for 1953's 1953 It Came from Outer Space and many more.
