Jack Kirby’s Storyboards for Argo (via io9, h/t @alexsegura)

The big disappointment for me about Argo was that it barely showed Jack Kirby’s contribution to the story of bringing the fake “Lords of Light” movie that the CIA used as a ruse to get the hostages out to life.  These storyboards show that, with Kirby’s visuals, the movie-within-a-movie might not have looked so ridiculous at all.  And let’s face it, the world would be better off if Iran had a “Science Fiction Land” theme park than nuclear weapons facilities.

No, the movie doesn’t really make any sense if you think about it.  But one of the more astounding scenes from one of the more visually interesting movies of the past ten years.
If this sequence looks like a comic book page to you, I’m sure that has something to do with the fact that Gabriel Hardman is a supremely talented comic book artist in his own right.

Storyboards for the ultimate sci-fi film.

Star Wars (1977)
Director: George Lucas
Storyboard Artist: Joe Johnston

I love how you can still see the late, great Ralph McQuarrie’s influence.

Joe Johnston, who drew these, art directed the original Star Wars trilogy as well as Raiders of The Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom.  He’d also go on to direct himself, most notably The Rocketeer and most recently Captain America: The First Avenger.  George Lucas would go on to ruining his creations and legitimately raping your childhoods.
