Omac #7 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Omac v1 #7, 1975 - The diabolical Doctor Skuba invents a molecule-compressor that can fit the world's lakes, rivers and oceans into small boxes held for ransom. Jack Kirby's creative plot extends into his artwork. Less fight-oriented than previous issues, his imagery is nonetheless impressive, from Omac's struggle to lift the small compartments (pages 4-6) to three masterful splash pages. Most spectacularly, Kirby fills a two-page spread with a recently emptied bay, still dripping with remnants of colorful sea creatures. This is number 7 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.
