Incredible, but true!
I know, something of an anti-climax. My point is that Jack Kirby drew, John Costanza lettered and Vince Colletta inked the splash page to New Gods 1 without space for the publishing indicia. At least that what two photocopies in the Museum’s archives indicate. So, more than likely, one of Jack Adler’s production people at DC/National did some photostatting and some paste-up to make room.
I recently found a scan of this very splash from my personal copy of New Gods 1, which I had signed by Jack at the Miami-Con in December 1975. So, for kicks, I took that scan, added the missing art, and did a hasty coloring job.
Thanks again, to Greg Theakston!
