Kirby Descendants Comment on Stan Lee Court Victory

by on January 31, 2005

Robert Katz and Lisa Kirby, nephew and daughter of legendary comic creator Jack Kirby, have made critical statements to the New York Times about Stan Lee’s recent court victory over Marvel Comics. A judge recently ruled that Lee was contractually entitled to 10% of film and TV profits from Marvel Enterprises, reviving complaints about historic mistreatment of Lee’s co-creators, such as Kirby and Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man.

In a related story, writer Mark Evanier reports that CBS’s 60 Minutes Wednesday will have a feature story on Lee’s lawsuit against Marvel Enterprises.
