It’s Jack Kirby Vs Tom King and Mitch Gerads in This Week’s Shatterstar #2

Posted by November 6, 2018 Comment

You may have seen the first two pages of tomorrow’s Shatterstar #2 by Tim Seeley and Carlos Villa.


It has become a metatextual look at the demands upon the superhero comic book medium over time. The first echoes Jack Kirby comic books of old.

The second, more the kind of comic one might read from Tom King and Mitch Gerads over in Mister Miracle, say.

Intentionally so by Seeley, as well. Did they notice?

Mitch did…. so probably Tom did as well.

Shatterstar #2 (of 5)
(W) Tim Seeley (A) Carlos Villa (CA) Yasmine Putri
With a simple act of violence, Shatterstar’s life was turned upside down. Nothing makes sense anymore…except for a pair of double-bladed swords and more bloodshed. So much more BLOODSHED.
