New Gods # 1

Yesterday I showed you what Jack must have assumed was the end of his Silver Surfer saga (although he would revisit the character in The Silver Surfer Graphic Novel in 1978), but Jack never seemed to be one to waste too much time looking back. Here he is producing some of the best stories and art in his career, getting the ball rolling on his famous Fourth World epic — the first pages of New Gods # 1 (Feb 1971). Inks by Vince Colletta. If you want to learn more about Jack’s 4W check out Jon C. Cooke’s excellent weblog 365 Days of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World on the Jack Kirby Museum website.
