    Jack Kirby Spirit World #2 Unpublished Inside Back Cover Collage Pin-up Original Art (DC/Hampshire Distributors, 1971). Jack Kirby was pushing the boundaries of exactly what a comic book could be in the 1970s. He convinced DC to try some magazine format titles, but cut-backs on production formats and poor distribution doomed the projects before even sales figures for the first issues came in. Sadly, Spirit World #2 was never printed. However many of the internal stories ended up in other DC books of the day. Alas, this fantastic collage work did not. But you get to see it here, and one of you will get to take it home! It is titled "The Two faces of the Twentieth Century - And Beyond!" in the top margin. The bottom margin reads "You'll see them both in the National "Speak Out" series", indicating that this was an ad for the entire line of magazines DC had planned before cancellation. Created with trimmed printed imaged affixed to board with an image area of 11" x 15". Toned, with some discoloration. One paste-up on the lower right corner is missing. In Very Good condition.
