    Jack Kirby - Who's Who #6 "Dr. Bedlam" Splash Page Pencils Original Art (DC, 1985). No one topped Jack "King" Kirby when it came to inventing memorable characters and costume designs for his super folk. Mr. Miracle takes on a murderous street mob, no doubt incited to riot by exposure to the "paranoid pill." Meanwhile, Dr. Bedlam appears center stage with his animates. An agent of Darkseid, Dr. Bedlam was a creature of pure psionic energy. He commanded the blank-featured androids known as animates and could project his features onto their forms. For the printed version of this piece, inker Mike Machlan must have worked using a lightbox, and it's quite an eye-opener to compare these pure Kirby pencils with the printed version. The page has an image area of 10" x 10", and the art is in Excellent condition. Jack Kirby signed the page, in ink, at the lower right.
