Hello Unearthlings! We’ve seen the work of Jack Kirby before on this site… he did the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. But today we’re taking a look at some of the most epic work in Kirby’s canon: the New Gods! It doesn’t get more epic than this, folks!
Let’s venture further into the mad world of the New Gods… or as Kirby called it, the Fourth World. Believe it or don’t, it never occurred to me until just last year that this was Kirby’s take on the “Third World” designation. Not sure how to approach this, really, but it’s not necessary to enjoy the following tale!
