    Description

    Jack Kirby - Original Art for The Forever People #10, - Complete 22-page story "The Scavengers" (DC, 1972). From the Firepits of Apokolips to the glittering spires of New Genesis, Jack Kirby's incredible 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 comes. The "younger generation" of New Genesis, the Forever People travelled Earth in their Whiz Wagon 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 even has a last panel advertisement for Kirby's new book, the Demon (the ad is actual art, not a paste-up). The Fourth World books are fondly remembered by many, and original art from these books is hotly sought and collected. Most of the books have been broken up over the years, making complete stories extremely rare. This particular book was systematically reunited from separate pages by an extremely dedicated collector. Kirby was, arguably, the greatest genius the comics industry has ever seen, making this a rare opportunity to acquire a complete example of his exquisite vision.
