    Jack Kirby and Mike Machlan Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #6 Page 22 "Doctor Bedlam" Illustration Original Art (DC, 1985). One of Jack Kirby's many secondary tier characters from the vast Fourth World epic, Doctor Bedlam was an evil scientist of Apokolips who specialized in inducing terror in the minds of his enemies. Note Mr. Miracle in battle mode in the background! This work was created in ink over graphite on 11" x 17" DC Bristol board, with an acetate overlay. The overlay has the paste-up text, along with lightboxed inks that were used in a red ink color hold effect on the printed page. If you look closely, you can make out some of Kirby's partly erased pencils, especially on the right side. The page is signed by Kirby in the lower right margin.
