Fantastic Four: Jack Kirby
Orbit: Jack Kirby has been announced by Bluewater Productions.

The latest in the publisher's line of biographic comics will focus on the iconic artist, best known for helping to create several of Marvel Comics' most popular characters.

Kirby is credited as the co-creator of the Hulk, Fantastic Four, the X-Men and many other influential properties. He frequently collaborated with Stan Lee, who has also been the subject of a Bluewater biographic one-shot.

"When we published Orbit: Stan Lee we understood it was only half the story," said Bluewater president Darren Davis. "We knew we needed to share Jack Kirby's story. Every comic book fan owes Kirby a debt of gratitude. He helped lay the foundations of the Silver Age of Comic Books."

Orbit: Jack Kirby is written by John Judy with artwork and a cover design by Paul Cox. The illustrator said that his goal is to "bring to life Kirby's great personality through his actions and expressions".

Bluewater has also announced biographic one-shots charting the lives of Jon Stewart, John Lennon and JRR Tolkien.

Orbit: Jack Kirby is released in January, 2012.
