New Gods v2 #6 - Jack Kirby art, cover & reprint

Jack Kirby
New Gods v2 #6, 1984 - Accompanying the reprinting of New Gods #11, this deluxe edition also boasts nearly fifty pages of new material. Jack Kirby delivers a long overdue conclusion to the saga. Four full page splashes and three two-page spreads punctuate key points in the story. The artist experiments with open panels, varied sequences and unusual layouts. Kirby puts forth a valiant effort on nearly every panel (see interior page below). Unfortunately, the final results are primitive, simplistic and overworked. This is number 6 of 6 New Gods v2 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.
