Jack Kirby label

April 17th 2010 was promoted as Record Store Day by some labels and shops, led by Play It Again Sam records. A leaflet showing a bunch of new titles and profiling a bunch of shops was printed up. Support independent music retail was the message. See what you can find. Well I had a dig about in some second hand twelve inchers, and here’s a smart label which drew my attention for no other reason than it features a Jack Kirby-esque Thing brandishing a pencil… the 12″ is plain sleeved otherwise and the music is by Ghislain Poirier. I wouldn’t have stumbled across this shopping online! (Kirby being my all-time US favourite comic artist).

Designed by nonconceptual, issued by Chocolate Industries, America, 2004

    Very much drawn in the style of (if not directly copied from) the late John Buscema would be my guess.
