The interviews are good, nothing too in depth. The material about Kirby's case against Marvel is better, the best essay is a look at the stakes, for lack of a better word, of the conflict in the Fourth World canon and how Kirby's world view shaped it, and how it differed from stories he lays claim to from Marvel.
