    Jack Kirby and Greg Theakston - Who's Who #6 "Deep Six" Splash Page Original Art (DC, 1985). When it came to inventing dynamic characters with fantastic costume designs, Jack Kirby truly was the "King." The Deep Six, a team of half-humanoid comic book villains, were created as part of Kirby's "Fourth World" titles. They first appeared in The New Gods #2 in 1971. At the bidding of their master, Darkseid, the Deep Six go into combat and spread terrorism in his name. All six fish-like members possess superhuman strength as well as the ability to breathe and function underwater. This action-packed splash page also has a vellum overlay that was inked for a special red ink-only effect in the printing process. Darkseid's head was inked on this overlay at the upper right. On the bristol page, Kirby's pencils can be seen beneath Greg Theakston's inks as can a "ghost image" of the erased pencils of Darkseid's head. The page has an image area of 10" x 12.5", and both pieces average Very Good condition. Jack Kirby signed the page in ink at the lower right.
