Jack Kirby's complete war and romance stories for Marvel collected in upcoming omnibus book

Before he got busy co-creating the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men and more for Marvel, Jack Kirby worked in multiple other genres of comics, including suspense, monster tales, war and romance.

This upcoming doorstop from Marvel collects tales from the latter two genres and is set for publication in May. It includes the first appearances of Nick Fury, back when he was an Army sergeant. You can pre-order it now from Amazon.

Details from Marvel:

King of the comics art form, Jack Kirby needs no introduction. He was an architect of the Marvel Universe, but his contributions extended far beyond just super heroes. Now, highlighting two sides of the human condition, Kirby's war and romance work finally gets its due! A combat veteran during World War II, Kirby brings hard-earned realism to BATTLEGROUND and BATTLE - while Kirby and Stan Lee bring the war genre into the Marvel Age with SGT. FURY! On the other end of the spectrum are tales from vintage romance titles - many restored directly from Kirby's original art - that prove that love is war!

Collecting: material from BATTLE #64-70; BATTLEGROUND #14; SGT. FURY #1-8, #10-20 and #25; LOVE ROMANCES #83-85, #87-88 and #96-106; MY OWN ROMANCE #71-76 and TEEN-AGE ROMANCE #84-86.
