Jack Kirby's 2001
I have the first few issues of legendary comic creator Jack Kirby's adaptation and expansion of the Kubrick film 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) and I wish I had them all. It only lasted ten issues and after number six he took it into a more comic book friendly direction but the brain-bending vistas and bizarre concepts he tossed around in this short run are wonderful. I don't think Marvel can reprint these books so I will continue to haunt shops to eventually complete my collection.
