Jack Kirby's Galactic Bounty Hunters is a six-issue comic book limited series by Marvel's imprint Icon Comics. It was based on some of Jack Kirby's unpublished ideas.

The series follows the story of Jack Berkley, a former interstellar bounty hunter who must reassemble his former team for one last mission, saving his son.

Publication history[edit]

The series was based on unused material Jack Kirby had prepared for the series Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #7. The galactic Bounty Hunters were based on early character designs for the Wonder Warriors and Kirby's daughter Lisa found them in his effects after he died and was persuaded by Michael Thibodeaux to work the ideas into a limited series, although initial ideas were for a film or animated television series.[1]

Issue #3 also featured another Kirby creation, Captain Victory.

Collected editions[edit]

The series has been collected into a single volume:
