Supernatural Kirby... ...
on May 15, 2012
I have waited nearly forty years to finally see this strange bit of Kirby make it's collected appearance. And the wait was worth it. For those of you out there who have been collecting all the DC Kirby omnibuses, this new addition to the line will be a welcome one, especially due to it's extreme scarcity. This new DC Kirby entry runs at about roughly 110 pages, black and white, and is deluxe sized. The stories in this book are inspired by true supernatural experiences and Kirby's art style here is very reminiscent of his 1950s horror comics work. Mark Evanier serves up a fine introduction detailing the secret origins of what is perhaps Kirby's strangest project. For Jack Kirby fans everywhere, this book is a must have for your Kirby library. Enjoy.
P.S. This volume also includes the aborted second issue of Spirit World,of which these stories were to appear at a later date scattered among various 1970s era DC horror comics of the time. Also the paper quality in this volume is of a stronger and sturdier sort than found in the regular Kirby omnibuses. Again, enjoy.
