Default DC Comics Direct Channel #852 (your weekly shipping update! 52!)

DC COMICS RESTORES HUNGER DOGS ART IN JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 4 HC

March, 2008, will see the release of JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 4, the final hardcover collection in this highly acclaimed series. Highlighting this volume will be THE HUNGER DOGS, with 24 pages of art restored to the original inks by Mike Royer.

“We are excited to share with readers Kirby’s original vision for the epic’s end in Vol. 4 of the FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS series,” says Georg Brewer, VP — Design and DC Direct Creative. “This collection features 24 pages at the size that Kirby penciled them, the way they looked before being altered to fit the larger trim size of the HUNGER DOGS graphic novel. Faithfully inked by Mike Royer, these pages are incorporated within the HUNGER DOGS story, which is completely re-colored with a sensibility consistent with the previous OMNIBUS hard covers. Along with the Fourth World character entries he drew for WHO’S WHO: THE DEFINITIVE DIRECTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE, these exciting, rarely seen aspects of Kirby’s work and this important story make this a must-have for every serious comics collector.”

In addition to THE HUNGER DOGS and art from WHO’S WHO, the JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 4 HC will collect MISTER MIRACLE #10-18, FOREVER PEOPLE #11, NEW GODS #11 and the 48-page story “Even Gods Must Die,” originally published in 1984’s NEW GODS #6.

The JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 4 HC will be advance-solicited in the November Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores in March.

Is all of Jack Kirby's New Gods material really done after only four volumes? I assumed it would be more than that.

They're pretty hefty volumes…


That said, I kinda thought there'd be more.

Maybe DC will collect his Super Powers stuff…

Well there was also his Kamandi, Sandman and Omac stuff but they really did not have anything to do with his whole New Gods saga.
