** In the movie ''Film/CrimsonTide'', Submarine Executive Officer Hunter points out to a crew member on the boat that "anyone who reads comic books knows that the Kirby ComicBook/SilverSurfer is the only true Silver Surfer."
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Minoriteam}}'' would always have an end credit giving special thanks to "King" Kirby.
** He briefly appears in ''Film/{{Argo}}'', played by Michael Parks, in his historical role of drawing the storyboards for the fake movie. Though he's not actually named in the film and you have to do some research to find out it's supposed to be him.
** In what would turn out to be the last published issue of Creator/AlanMoore's ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'', published shortly after Kirby's real-world death, Supreme discovers a LostWorld in the Himalayas, which is populated by a whole load of [[CaptainErsatz Captains Ersatz]] of Kirby creations and ruled by a "Creator" who looks exactly like Kirby and is strongly implied to be Kirby somehow reborn as a god-like entity in the Awesome Universe.

* SelfImposedChallenge: When he joined DC, he voluntarily took over ''Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen'', their worst performing title which was on the verge of being cancelled, and supposedly promised he'd make it a best-seller. What is definitely true is that he took it over because it was the ONLY book without a set team, [[NiceGuy and he didn't want to kick anyone else off of their books.]]
* ShoutOut: In the movie ''Film/CrimsonTide'', Submarine Executive Officer Hunter points out to a crew member on the boat that "anyone who reads comic books knows that the Kirby ComicBook/SilverSurfer is the only true Silver Surfer."

In the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, {{God}} looks like Jack Kirby. Or, [[RuleOfPerception he did in one story]]. (Not to mention, he and Creator/StanLee also exist there as normal people who write comics based on the [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis 'actual' adventures of the superheroes]].)

'''Jack "[[RedBaron The King]]" Kirby''' (August 28, 1917 February 6, 1994, born Jacob Kurtzberg) is, quite simply, one of the most important and influential artists and writers ''ever'' in American comics. This is the man who created or co-created ''dozens'' of classic characters for [[Creator/DCComics DC]] and [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]], and he is universally considered one of the masters of the medium, on a par with Creator/OsamuTezuka, Creator/WillEisner or Creator/{{Moebius}}.
