[T]he third section of the movie also contains an image that’s remarkably Kirby-like. When Dave enters the Discovery’s computer center to “kill” HAL, he’s shot from below, looking like one of Kirby’s iconic superhumans. As an artist, Kirby made sense for 2001, because he excelled at drawing futuristic technology and he thought in widescreen. Visually, the 2001 Marvel Treasury is a thing of beauty, with the oversized format (10 by 14 inches rather than than the more common 7.25 by 10.5) suiting Kirby’s preference for big panels and two-page splashes. Kirby borrows some compositions directly from the film, but he adds his own dynamic poses and granite faces. He gives a somewhat stately film a jolt of Kirby electricity.

Noel Murray compares Jack Kirby’s 2001 to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 and lays out the events surrounding the creation of each.
