Posted by March 16, 2017 Comment

We’ve seen the new Kamandi exquisite corpse of a comic book. We know there’s a Fourth World Omnibus – possibly the biggest book DC Comics has ever published. But it doesn’t stop there, for celebrating the 100th birthday year of the late Jack Kirby. Here are some more books that DC are publishing for close to his birthday.


Jack Kirby’s Mister Miracle (New Edition)
26 September $29.99 300 pages


As part of the NEW GODS saga, JACK KIRBY’S MISTER MIRACLE focuses on Scott Free’s attempt to escape his past and create his own future. Raised on the war-ravaged world of Apokolips, Scott became a master escape artist in order to flee his planet and fight in the epic battle against his former home world’s tyrant, Darkseid. Taking on the persona of Mister Miracle and fighting alongside the love of his life, Big Barda, Scott proves that a man, not his upbringing, determines his destiny.

Created by the legendary Jack Kirby, this graphic novel collection comes back after being out of print for years! Collects all 18 issues of MISTER MIRACLE!


Jack Kirby’s The Demon
17 October $29.99 300 pages

After co-creating comic book heroes such as THE FANTASTIC FOUR and THE HULK, legendary writer/artist Jack Kirby came to DC Comics in 1970 to write and illustrate several characters, including Etrigan the Demon! Now these adventures are collected here in one graphic novel with JACK KIRBY’S THE DEMON!

Collecting the entire, original 16-issue series from the early 1970s, part man, part elemental fury, Etrigan the Demon was bound to Jason Blood by Merlin to defend Camelot, only to become a demonologist in the modern-day DC Universe. This yellow-skinned creature became a mainstay in DC publications going forward in stories none more notable than Kirby’s original run!

Finally collected in paperback for the first time ever, this new collection is a must-have for any Jack Kirby fan!
