He entered the nascent comics industry in the 1930s, drawing various comics features under different pen names, including Jack Curtiss, before ultimately settling on Jack Kirby.In 1940, he and writer-editor Joe Simon created the highly successful superhero character Captain America for Timely Comics, predecessor of Marvel Comics.Through that company, Kirby did what he remembers as his first comic book work, for Wild Boy Magazine.
Kirby was involved in Timely's 1950s iteration, Atlas Comics, which in the next decade became Marvel.
At age 14, Kirby enrolled at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, leaving after a week.

Kirby joined the Lincoln Newspaper Syndicate in 1936, working there on newspaper comic strips and on single-panel advice cartoons such as Your Health Comes First!!! He remained until late 1939, when he began working for the movie animation company Fleischer Studios as an inbetweener (an artist who fills in the action between major-movement frames) on Popeye cartoons. "From Fleischer I had to get out in a hurry because I couldn't take that kind of thing," describing it as "a factory in a sense, like my father's factory.

After a few failed editor-assigned ghosting assignments, National's Jack Liebowitz told them to "just do what you want".
There, in the 1960s, Kirby and writer-editor Stan Lee co-created many of the company's major characters, including the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Hulk.
