King of the comics art form, Jack Kirby needs no introduction. He was an architect of the Marvel Universe, but his contributions to Marvel extended far beyond just super heroes. Highlighting two sides of the human condition, Kirby's war and romance work finally gets its due in this omnibus edition. A combat soldier during World War II, Kirby brings hard-earned realism to stories from BATTLEGROUND and BATTLE. Atlas-era Cold War intrigue manifests in the adventure comic YELLOW CLAW, 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 Marvel romance titles-many restored directly from Kirby's original art-that prove that love is war!
