Jack Kirby... Prophet?!?

Christopher Knowles explores the possibility that Jack Kirby tapped into something pretty profound while working on some of his 80's storylines.

At first I was a bit skeptical, but now I'm in the "Wow, I never saw that story quite that way before" camp.

I'm kinda nursing the theory that Jack Kirby worked the hours equivalent of a med school resident for so long that he succeeded in reaching a meditative state of mind while he was working. There's anecdotal evidence he would be in this state for so long that he'd have trouble snapping out of it; his wife Roz had to take care of things like driving the car because he'd be in his own little world.
