Argo was a film I really enjoyed, and the basis of the entire plot owes everything to a movie called Lord of Light, which an adaptation of a sci-fi novel. Lord of Light sat in development hell until CIA operative Tony Mendez renamed it Argo and used this insane scifi movie as a cover story to smuggle 6 Americans home from Iran.
Part of Mendez's plan included getting concept art, tons of it. So Mendez and his crew hired legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby!
These are just some examples. Jack Kirby was so good at his job that the government needed him to save lives with it!
