Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter and Marvel including Captain America, the Young Allies, and the Kid Commandos. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boys' Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's Fantastic Four cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic FOURTH WORLD TRILOGY, which was followed by THE DEOMON and KAMANDI. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.From Booklist:
After DC pulled the plug on Kirby’s ambitious New Gods (see Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Omnibus, v.1, 2007; v.2, 2007; v.3, 2007; v.4, 2008) in 1972, the artist was still under contract, and Kirby, who generated ideas like normal people produce dandruff, came up with more series concepts, including this one set in “the world that’s coming,” in which corporate drone Buddy Blank is transformed by the AI-enabled satellite Brother Eye into a superpowered “One Man Army Corps” to police the world for the faceless Global Peace Agency. Oddball even by the eccentric standards of Kirby’s later work, O.M.A.C. opens with the image of a disassembled female “Build-a-Friend” robot-in-a-box that ranks among the more disquieting visions in mainstream comics. Lacking the loopy humor that typically leavened Kirby’s stories of the time only heightened O.M.A.C.’s grim intensity, and his characteristically bold, kinetic artwork ratcheted up over-the-top fervency even further. The comic ended after only eight issues, when Kirby returned to Marvel. Although O.M.A.C. was revived and reinvented by others, Kirby’s original stories are unparalleled. --Gordon Flagg
