New Gods #4 - Jack Kirby art, cover & reprint

New Gods v1 #4, 1971 - In search of a signal jammer to his Mother Box, Orion employs his team of ordinary people to infiltrate the Inter-gang crime organization. Jack Kirby's cover and art are dependably quick-paced and engaging. A two-page spread displays the savagery of prehistoric man while Metron hovers high above in his Mobius Chair (pages 2-3). This stunning image is equalled by a splash page close-up of Darkseid, ominously peering from the shadows (page 10). This story was later reprinted in New Gods v2 #2. Starting this issue, the 52-page format using both new and reprinted material begins. Interestingly, two golden age Simon and Kirby tales are included: a short coast guard story and a Manhunter feature from Adventure Comics #73. This is number 4 of 11 New Gods issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or New Gods issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
