Band on the Run...from MAGNETO!

Courtesy of

Here's a rarely seen piece from Jack "the King" Kirby that he drew for Paul and Lynda McCartney way back when.

The story goes that Paul use to read marvel comics to his kids back in the 70's and he enjoyed the "new" comics coming out at the time, wrote a little ditty on their 1975 album Mars and Venus titled "Magneto and the Titanium Man" and requested a meeting with Jack during a Wings tour date in L.A.

The two met, Jack gave Paul the drawing, Paul gave Jack tickets to their concert in LA and Paul dedicated the aforementioned song to Kirby.

Pretty sweet.
