The Marvel Super Heroes are back! Fans will light up with this second volume of the psychedelic, collectible portfolio featuring 12 frameable black light posters of celebrated Marvel Comics characters, such as Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Doctor Strange, and Black Bolt, illustrated by legendary artists including Jack Kirby, John Romita Sr., Gil Kane, and more.
The first issue of Fantastic Four by legendary creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced fans to a now-iconic team of Super Heroes—Mister Fantastic, the Invisible Girl, the Human Torch, and the Thing—ushering in the modern Marvel Age of comics. Chip Kidd uses an original copy of the comic book (which initially sold for ten cents and now sells for astronomical prices in good condition) to present the classic story in a whole new way that is sure to engage both lifelong fans and the latest generation of Marvel enthusiasts.
Jack Kirby left Marvel Comics in 1970 due to creative differences with Stan Lee to create his greatest work for DC Comics which would later be called, The Fourth World. His Fourth World books were a failure in the early 70s. The Fourth World characters lingered in the DC universe for 50 years and play significant roles in shaping continuity. From 1970 till 1973, the New Gods books desperately tried to gain a following with poor sales.
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.
