    Short summary describing this person.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Jack Kirby actually first turned down Vic but then upon finding Carrabotta's pregnant wife in the lobby as he was seeing Carrobotta out, gave the struggling artist a break:

    Jack was very nice. I was just a kid back then, only 21. As he walked me out, I said, "By the way, this is my wife, Connie." Connie stands up and Jack does a double-take up and down because she's pregnant…. He said, "Sit here a minute, I need to go back to my office." He writes a note and seals it, and tells me to go back to Stan with the note. … [Upon doing so,] Stan said, "Jack says you're a good artist." I said, "Oh, I don't know. Would you like to see my samples?" He says, "No, that's OK. Jack says you're a good artist. I'll tell you what," and he throws this script across the desk. He says, "I this want this back in a week."
