Noble Monsters

Here you go: some pages from vol 9. of Jack Kirby’s New Gods. Like many comic book fans, I got started early. I stumbled onto the piles and piles of old comics previously owned by uncles and older cousins and well, you know what happened next. When you’re young is really the perfect time to get hooked on comics. For the exact same reason most of us get started reading by getting into myths and legends, we start looking into superheroes and supervillains and multiverses beyond. Kirby knew exactly that and to this day there are few who can match his way of building new worlds, strange, battling gods and noble monsters. These pages are just some of those permanently burned into my mind. Click to make bigger. Prepare to be moved.
