Kirby Crackles In Keith Giffen's 'Hordak'
Keith Giffen has had a long career, almost 40 years in the comics business. He's gone through several creative iterations, but one mode that was there at the beginning and keeps coming back is his all-out Jack Kirby drawing style. As a penciller, he's DC's equivalent to Marvel's John Romita Jr. Both are bold Kirbyesque stylists at companies that favor photoreference, whose work evokes a generation prior to their own. I wish DC utilized Giffen as well as Marvel utilizes Romita. Perhaps that's because DC values Giffen the writer more than Giffen the artist.
