July 22, 2014: Welcome to the 2014 New Limited First Edition of the Jack Kirby / Lord of Light artwork -- completely recreated. Enjoy!

    The Lord of Light Art Series

    The Lord of Light Art Series was envisioned and designed by Barry Ira Geller and legendary comic book creator, Jack Kirby, based upon Geller's screenplay. Each rendering was drawn with incendiary brilliance by Jack and inked with devastating intensity by Mike Royer.

    Each Kirby architectural masterpiece was created both as a film set design and theme park illustration. Each Art Print portrays the same panoramic, roving birds-eye view style Jack was famous for, ranging from the power of Captain America and Fantastic Four, to the majesty of Thor and the New Gods. As depicted in Wired Magazine May 2007, these are the Lord of Light prints CIA spies used to secretly free six American Hostages from Iran in 1979.

    "Jack and I started with my idea of doing both Lord of Light film sets and Science Fiction Land theme park designs from the same drawings. This would then become a method of preserving his design flow throughout the entire development and production of Lord of Light and Science Fiction Land theme park. In this fashion Jack would remain, "The General," my conferred role upon him.

    The 2014 Limited Edition Prints, First Edition

    The limited, first edition prints are fully restored and enhanced from the original print negatives that were produced from the 1978 original art, and created for the Sothebys' auction in 1993. The negatives were scanned in high-resolution then meticulously restored and digitally enhanced in 2013-2014, to provide the best quality image, even better than the original images. Jack would really be proud of this work, done by digital reconstructionist, Tom Kraft.

    The final fully restored, high-resolution images are printed at full, 20"x24" size as Giclée prints on Epson Hot Press Natural, Smooth Fine Art Heavy Weight (16mm) paper. This paper is archival, acid-free, 100% cotton fiber paper with no optical brighteners.

    “I have seen samples of this new printing and it is the best prints from the Original Kirby have seen in 35 years!”
    Barry Ira Geller

    Prints are numbered 1-100 with the first 10 in reserve. Each print is number, signed by Barry Ira Geller and stamped with the official Jack Kirby Museum logo. There will be a total of 14-20x24 prints with the Planetary Control Room as 2 individual prints. 20x24 prints are in same numbered sets. Sets will include 7 prints each. Set #1 is available now (see below). A future release of the Planetary Control Room will combine the 2 individual prints, as Jack Kirby originally envisioned it a single drawing, into a full 24x40 print.

    What is so cool: I will be signing each print with one of Jack's very own draughting pencils found on his drawing table & given to me by Roz Kirby.
