Omac #8 - Jack Kirby art, Joe Kubert cover

Omac v1 #8, 1975 - Due to Doctor Skuba's shock wave, Omac reverts back to his original Buddy Blank persona. The series abruptly ends with this issue, leaving several climactic events unresolved. Jack Kirby's art meets expectations, bolstered by a two-page spread and three splashes. Kubert's cover, by comparison, seems incongruent in style for this particular title. This is number 8 of 8 Omac issues with Kirby art and/or covers and number 8 of 8 Omac issues with Kubert' art and/or covers.

  1. Dek Baker & Davis Morris finally did OMAC #9 (as a fanzine) in 2002, which picked up exactly where OMAC #8 left off and FINISHED the story. I heard about this in TJKC magazine, and sent away for a copy of it. Totally blew my mind, then and now. That 2 "fans" should do a BETTER job capturing the look and spirit of Jack Kirby & his concept than anybody (and I mean anybody!!!) at DC has ever, ever done since, is bizarre. DC was really foolish not to strike a deal with Baker & Morris to include OMAC #9 in their OMAC collection. To me, it is the ONLY "legitimate" continuation of the character ever done.
