New Gods #7 - Jack Kirby art, cover & reprint

New Gods v1 #7, 1972 - Interestingly, Jack Kirby diverts from the ongoing storyline to delve into the past. An earlier war between New Genesis and Apokolips results in a truce, and an exchange of two boys who would later become Orion and Scott Free. An idyllic opening splash quickly gives way to a violent battle. The subsequent double-page spread reveals its progression into all-out war between good and evil. More than midway throught the series, Kirby's work maintains its energy and creativity. This story was later reprinted in New Gods v2 #4. A short back-up tale features Vykin the Black (of the Forever People), while this issue's golden age reprint stars Manhunter (from Adventure Comics #76). This is number 7 of 11 New Gods issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
