    Jack Kirby and Mike Royer - The Forever People #10, Complete 22-page Story "The Scavengers" Original Art (DC, 1972). From the Firepits of Apokolips to the glittering spires of New Genesis, Jack Kirby's astounding Fourth World epic burst fully-formed on an unsuspecting world in 1970, when Kirby moved to DC after years at rival Marvel. First appearing in Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen, the Fourth World storyline soon spawned three brand-new titles: The New Gods, Mister Miracle, and The Forever People, from which this particular story hails. The "younger generation" of New Genesis, the Forever People traveled Earth battling the evil minions of Darkseid. This story, the next-to-last issue of this key title and one of the best of the run, features Deadman, and also showcases a last panel advertisement for Kirby's new book, The Demon (the ad is original art, not a pasted-up stat). The Fourth World books are fondly remembered and original art from these books is hotly sought-after and collected. Most of the books have been broken up over the years, making complete stories scarce. Kirby was one of the greatest talents the comics industry has ever seen, making this a not-to-be-missed opportunity to acquire a complete Bronze Age masterpiece based on Kirby's mythic vision. Each page of this blockbuster has an approximate image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.
