Item DescriptionJack Kirby made headlines when he jumped from Marvel to DC in 1970 and created his wildly imaginative 'FOURTH WORLD' oeuvre. The FOREVER PEOPLE became a somewhat light-hearted piece of the new direction Kirby engineered, which also brought Apokolips and DARKSEID into the DC Universe.
The FOREVER PEOPLE were a group of young New Gods from New Genesis who were on a mission to oppose DARKSEID on Earth, and talked, dressed, and acted much like the flower children of the 1960s. The group was composed of Mark Moonrider, Big Bear, Vykin the Black, Serifan, and Beautiful Dreamer. In addition to their individual abilities and equipment, the group could join together using the technology of a Mother Box to summon the powerful hero known as the INFINITY-MAN. The group travels by use of their Super-Cycle and are aided by the Boom Tube.
Here are issues #2 and #3 of the title's 11-issue run. In #2, in the story 'Super War!', they try to fit in on their new world, but are still plagued by DARKSEID's powerful reach from afar, and the villain MANTIS that he sends after them!
And in #3, 'Life vs Anti-Life!', tells how the FOREVER PEOPLE are confronted by the menace of GLORIOUS GODFREY,one of Darkseid's lieutenants, an evangelist who preaches the concept of anti-life and recruits people to become fanatical "Justifiers" who destroy and kill on command.
Jack Kirby's story, characters and artwork (his pencils were inked by Vince Colette) are incredibly imaginative and appealing!
These are nice copies of FOREVER PEOPLE #2 and #3 - 41-year old comics! #2 has a couple of dings to its front cover (including a small missing piece of the lower corner) but is otherwise in good shape. #3 is in even better shape. We conservatively grade these as a combined 7.0 FN/VF, for which Overstreet suggests a combined price of $36. We'll let you add these great KIRBY issues to your Fourth World collection for just $20 . . with our always-L•O•W shipping!
