But Internet search is a funny beast and when I searched Twitter this morning for the latest news on the Kirby Torch I came across this blog post Kirby does the Human Torch on a blog called Til the Last Hemlock Dies.
Apparently there was a character called the Human Torch who appeared frequently in Marvel Comics and the character was written on a regular basis by a writer called Jack Kirby.
How spooky is that possum?
Even more spooky is that the blog post talks about a legal challenge concerning intellectual property matters by the original creator of the Torch.
And the story of the Torch concludes on this sad note...
It's almost as if Kirby was saying, 'Okay, guys. Here it is. I'm going to give it one last shot.' And he tried. And he failed. The Torch was just not first flight material in the Silver Age.
