    Jack Kirby and Mike Royer New Gods V2#2 Cover Black Racer Original Art (DC, 1984). Kirby delivered an all-new cover for this 1980s reprint of the original New Gods #3 and 4. The story "Death is the Black Racer" introduced a new character to Kirby's epic Fourth World saga that was equal parts terrifying and strange. He seemed almost a take-off on Kirby's previous Marvel creation, the Silver Surfer, but with a macabre and deadly twist. This dynamic cover is packed with Kirby power and created in ink over graphite on Sparta Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The logo, DC bullet, price info, and all cover text are stat paste-ups. There is also a small bit of original art paste-up to bring the Black Racer's collar up over the logo; however, the original collar art is underneath. Signed by Kirby on the gunman's hand in the lower right. Lightly toned, in Very Good condition/Excellent condition.
