Fourth World Recycling!



I've been reading some vintage Star Spangled Comics with the great Newsboy Legion by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. And while I've seen the classic debut cover for Star Spangled Comics #7 for the team, I'd not grokked that it might well have been an insipiraton for the cover of Forever People #1. See what you think. Clearly the FP are the Fourth World variation on the "Kid Gangs" that Kirby was so successfully associated with and having a visual shout out to a DC class makes all the sense in the world.

    1. The Super-Cycle could adapt its shape, but most images show her slithering next to Mark Moonrider (doubtless part of his nefarious scheme to begin with).
