New Gods v1 #5, 1971 - Having escaped the clutches of the underwater mutates known as the Deep Six, Orion discovers a gigantic shell that's been recently abandoned. Four splash pages and a jaw-dropping two-page spread of a floating behemoth adorn this excellent Jack Kirby tale. Mike Royer takes over as inker, staying true to the original pencils' excitement and spontaneity. The resulting pages reach new artistic heights within the series. "Spawn" was later reprinted in New Gods v2 #3. Remaining stories feature the Young Gods of Supertown (featuring Fastbak in his first appearance) and the golden age Manhunter (reprint). This is number 5 of 11 New Gods issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
