First Issue Special # 5

Some rarely seen Kirby artwork from DC’s First Issue Special # 5 (Aug 1975) featuring Jack’s Manhunter. Art by Kirby/Berry. Pages 1, 15, and 16. I’ve always felt that it would have been amazing to see Jack do a regular title like First Issue Special for a long stretch because I’m sure he would have amazed us with a pantheon of new intellectual properties every month. I’m sure DC and Marvel must be kicking themselves for not taking advantage of Jack’s talents in the 1980s because history has shown a significant number of his creations are priceless.
