Jack Kirby Copyright Debacle

If you are a fan of comic books than you must know what an impact Jack Kirby was to the comic book medium. He single-handily established the Marvel style and was it's greatest character creator. He was responsible for the creation of  the Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor and more. It appears that their was a provision for creators to get copyrights back under certain circumstances but such was not the case for Kirby's heirs.

It is important for artists / content creators to know about copyrights and contracts; especially work for hire arrangements and intellectual property clauses. That is a topic to discuss in a  post coming soon.
