Written and drawn by Jack Kirby, with inks by Mike Royer on all but the first two issues, this classic collection was originally published by DC Comics and is the very first Artist's Edition to feature the legendary artistic prowess of "King Kirby!"
Nearly every page of this Artist's Edition has been scanned from the original art and is presented in this multi award-winning large format. In a career that began in the Golden Age of Comics, Kirby virtually kick-started the medium and he created (or co-created): Captain America, Manhunter, The Newsboy Legion, The Fantastic Four, Challengers of the Unknown, The X-Men, The Incredible Hulk
the list goes on and on.
AN ARTIST'S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original artfor instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
