Family Portrait!


Here's a vintage presentation by Walt Simonson from 1982 of Darkseid and his sons Orion and Kalibak. This father and sons team look menacing in this image which evokes the majesty of the classic Kirby look without aping it. Simonson has been the most successful in revisiting the Fourth World since the "King" can no longer visit.

  1. Darkseid is either too small in the picture or that chair is too big. He should look menacing but he looks tiny.

    1. I think it's likely a perspective problem. Darkseid has gotten bigger over the last several years since showing up in JLA and such. He was always impressive, but not unlike many of Kirby's characters not necessarily large.

    I’ll have what Darkseid’s having – Thanks!

    1. A heady tankard of anti-life is what the granite-headed dictator craves.
