Akira by....Kirby and Lee?

This recent entry by to The Line Is Drawn (a weekly online happening celebrating mashed-up comic book themes) imagines Akira being created Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. It's got all the hallmarks of a Bronze Age Kirby. This week's theme was Japanese anime and manga cast in a style of more American/western artists. The Akira/Kirby piece is by the fantastically talented Marco D'Alfonso.

Throw in a little of Kirby's own Kamandi and you've got the makings of a really interesting Gamma-style campaign!



  1. That's one great cover. We grew up with Kamandi and a few of the other Kirby greats, so we can never get enough of things like this!

  2. Indeed! And he just made it available in print for a reasonable price!
