Omac #5 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Omac v1 #5, 1975 - In the "world that's coming", a global Crime Cabal perfects the transplantation of old brains into new bodies. Omac must stop them via his only lead, a lower level thug named Buck Blue. Jack Kirby'a cover layout is a bit too simplistic for my tastes, but his interiors compensate with typical artistry. Inker D. Bruce Berry does an adequate job with little fanfare. Only two splash pages occur in this issue, accompanied by yet another terrific Kirby spread. This is number 5 of 8 Omac issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Omac issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
