DC Comics To Republish Jack Kirby’s Spirit World

We know the story. Jack Kirby, enraged by the lack of respect and/or money he was getting from Marvel Comics, moved to DC. This was a big deal, the equivalent of Marvel signing Geoff Johns now, or DC signing Brian Bendis. And so he began work on what would become Jack Kirby’s Fourth World.

Except, not quite. Because first he worked as writer/artist/editor on a a range of new magazines for DC in a variety of formats and topics. Including Spirit World, a supernatural themed, oversized, black-and-white with better production qualities, the magazines could explore areas that a comics code-restrained comic could not, under the company name of Hampshire Distributions. He used collage, fumetti and standard comic book styles to tell a variety of stories, from the predicted death of JFK to the life of Nostradamus.

It lasted one issue.

Other produced stories were then printed in issues of other DC mystery comics including Weird Mystery.

Well, now it seems that DC Comics are to reprint it, 102 pages long and twice the length of the only published issue, probably with some of those Weird Mystery stories to make up the length.

Jack Kirby’s Spirit World ships in hardcover in April.
