In olden days, a man who insisted he could live forever would have been viewed as a strong candidate for either crucifixion or veneration. These days heâ€™s a natural candidate for a top job at Google, where â€śsolving deathâ€ť is just another a pet project of CEO and co-founder Larry Page.
Via Mark’s BoingBoing post,Â “I have a feeling Kirby was inspired by the Mayan space jockey image that Erich von DĂ¤niken touted as proof of alien visitation in his crackpot science classic, Chariots of the Gods (1968)”
From Mystery Theater: As with all things paranormal in the 1970s, there were two paths you could wander down, that of “true-tales” or the one that produced some of the best comics, movies, and music of that era.Â Two of my favorite alien-related fictions from that time are The Eternals comic book and the film Alien.
Others have pointed out this before, but I still find the similarities between the first page of The Eternals #1 by Jack Kirby, published in July of 1976
From BoingBoing comments:
[Ridley] Scott also drew heavily from Mario Bava’s 1965 film “Planet of the Vampires” for his sets and the general plot. The inspiration is more obvious at other points in the film, but here’s one scene similar to the “space jockey.”
