Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After co-creating a number of legendary comic book heroes — including The Fantastic Four and The Hulk — legendary writer/artist Jack Kirby came to DC Comics in 1970 to create his magnum opus: four interlocked adventure series that were known collectively as "The Fourth World."

Now, for the first time, DC collects Kirby's four series — The New Gods, The Forever People, Mister Miracle, and Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen — in chronological order as they originally appeared. These comics spanned galaxies, from the streets of Metropolis to the far-flung worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips, as cosmic-powered heroes and villains struggled for supremacy.

The Fourth World Vol. 1 features the debuts of Orion of the New Gods, the evil Darkseid, super-escape artist Mister Miracle and many others, and features numerous appearances by Superman, from the pages of Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #133–139, Forever People #1–3, New Gods #1–3, and Mister Miracle #1–3!

Review:

"This volume collects the best of the Fourth World stories...usefully arranging them in an order that reads like one vast tale....[Y]ou can read this book just for its own richly complex and time-capsule-funny pleasure." Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"DC is bringing back the entire Kirby saga...in several big, beautiful hardcover editions with all the rich colors of the originals....The DC omnibuses are evidence of the enduring appeal of his stories. Future generations will come to see Kirby as an exciting myth-maker whose message was life-affirming." Los Angeles Times
