    David Roach (attributed) - Unpublished Jack Kirby Tribute, New Gods Cover Original Art (1994) Darkseid and Orion face off as the New Gods battle, between their profiles. Working from a photocopy of a Jack Kirby 1978 pencil drawing, artist David Roach inked Kiby's tableau onto a sheet of a paper with the help of a lightbox in 1994. Thus, there are no pencils under these inks and the page is super-clean. "Posthumous collaborations" such as this one have become commonplace since Kirby's death in 1994, thanks to tribute magazines, repackaging efforts, "inking contests" and fanzines dedicated to "the King." As often is the case, the piece even has an inked facsimile of Jack Kirby's signature dated "'78." The image area of the cover is 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.
