To the Heirs of Kirby the King

Please don't do this.

Please, please, please don't do it. I know you guys think you deserve more than you got (and you certainly do) but do us a favor: try to work it out with Marvel. See if you can't get some credit and some money from that without dragging yourselves, them and, most importantly, Captain America, through the American court system.

Jack Kirby got cheated, that's for sure, but what exactly do you think you're going to accomplish? Kirby probably knew full well exactly what was going to happen to his creations, and I suspect you (and your lawyer) know that too. It's not like he was new to the business; by the time the Silver Age hit he had already been in the business for twenty years

Please, please, please find some other way to get what you want.
