Fourth World Omnibus by John Byrne

July promises to be hotter this year with the release of Fourth World Omnibus by John Byrne by DC Comics. The giant omnibus collects all the Fourth stories by fan favourite writer/artist John Byrne. True to the Jack Kirby creation, this series is sure to entertain.

John Byrne reinvented Superman and illustrated some of the most famous stories in X-Men history. Much like how Jack Kirby created the Fourth World at DC following his genre-defining career at Marvel, after Byrne’s work on multiple pop culture icons, the writer and artist took on the Fourth World himself, as collected in this hardcover omnibus.

While staying faithful to Kirby’s original vision, these tales brought characters like Orion, Darkseid, Mr. Miracle, and the Forever People into the 1990s, reviving the epic mythology of New Genesis and Apokolips for a new generation of readers.

This collection also includes Genesis, a team-up between the heroes of Earth–including Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman–and the New Gods of New Genesis against Darkseid, as the Godwave threatens reality!

This volume collects New Gods #12-15, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #1-20, and Genesis #1-4.

Fun Fact:

Jack Kirby wrote the outline that would become New Gods while writing his Tales of Asgard series for Marvel. He planned on blowing things up following Ragnarök and introduce the New Gods in the aftermath of destruction.
