"The ORIGIN of the DEMON"

By Mutant Massacre, 01/12/2009 - 5:26pm

Etrigan the Demon is definitely not the most well known comic book character, but his strange appearance and even weirder rhyme speak have always made him an interesting character to me. Even though Jack Kirby's creation has remained in relative obscurity except to the most die-hard DC fans, the DEMON has still managed to pull off appearances in the Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited series, and I even saw him last Friday in the new Batman: the Brave and the Bold cartoon  on Cartoon Network. (not to mention his new action figure in Mattel's DC Universe Classics line) While  I was trying to find out a little more of the Demon's history I ran across this article on Comic Book Resources talking about how Jack Kirby  (creator of the Demon), considered to be the most influential comic book artist of all time,  lifted the Demons design from an old Prince Valiant comic strip. I wonder if Kirby or DC had to pay royalties?
