ONE MAN ARMY CORPS

There's a few art forms that are attributed to being purely American-- Jazz, gangster movies, hardcore pornography-- I would argue that the comic book is about as American as any of those things. If there's anyone that can be considered a purely American artist, I wager it'd be Jack Kirby.

Lichtenstein is a hack and Warhol is a shill. If you want to look at pure, American pop art, you can't do any better than the King of Comics, Jack Kirby.
