Machine Man Crushes a Baseball
Happy 96th birthday, Jack Kirby.
And while this has little to do with baseball, if you’ve ever enjoyed a superhero comic, paid money to watch the Avengers, or, really, read a piece of genre fiction in the last thirty years, you have a lot to owe to King Kirby. He’s the man whose imagination was nearly limitless, who couldn’t drive a car because he couldn’t restrain his endless creativity, who created entire worlds in an afternoon.
And so I post Machine Man destroying a baseball in honor of that spirit.
Which will really make my next baseball fart joke pale in comparison.
