Back on July 14th, Jack Kirby's son Neal Kirby accepted the Disne y Legeends award for his father. Here's a link to the event

Jack Kirby also has his own page commemorating his induction to the Disney Legends

I'm kind of wondering if Kirby would even want his name associated with Disney. I'm sure back in even his day Disney was aggressive and stingy. For several years Disney did not credit the artists and writers of their Disney related comics at all.

For example readers of Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge for years did not know that the guy who was making the better stories was a guy called Carl Barks...they only knew him as "The Duck Man".

Disney giving an honor to a comic book writer seems kind of laughable. Kirby is a great artist but Disney has a shady history.
