Some New Gods!


Incredible! I forget where I found this awesome assembly of the original drawings Jack Kirby did for his New Gods project. Pictured here as imagined by Kirby for the first time are Darkseid, Metron, Orion, Lightray, Mister Miracle and Mantis. Some look a bit different than they did when they finally got to the comics page. These images by "The King" truly inspire awe.

  1. The whole collage background in the Metron one is great and I also like the planets in the background of Darkseid. Both backgrounds greatly enhance the image.

  2. Ma foi! It just struck me that Mantis looks more amphibian than insect. Could he have been meant to be Manta, instead?

  3. Dave - Those collages are just plain cool.

    Dougie - He does now that you mention it, but the Deep Six are Kirby's water villains, and Mantis does look different from them.
