Item DescriptionJACK KIRBY, long a fixture at Marvel Comics and widely admired for his action-packed art style and his fertile imagination, spent nearly two years quietly negotiating a deal to move to DC Comics. He moved over to the rival publisher in late 1970 when he signed a three-year contract with an option for two additional years. He produced a series of interlinked titles under the blanket sobriquet "The Fourth World", which included a trilogy of new titles &mdash _New Gods__, __Mister Miracle__,_ and _The Forever People__._
He also produced other DC series such as _Kamandi_, _The Demon_, _Kobra_, and OMAC the first issue of which we are offering here.
As envisioned by Kirby, OMAC is essentially Captain America set in the future, an idea he had toyed with some years earlier while at Marvel Comics but had never realized. Here in "Brother Eye and Buddy Blank" - written and illustrated by Kirby with inking by Mike Royer - members of the Global Peace Agency select an employee of Pseudo-People, Inc. named BUDDY BLANK to serve as a candidate for Project OMAC. Scientist Doctor Myron Forest develops a process that interfaces BUDDY with the orbiting satellite network known as BROTHER EYE, which has the ability to remotely transmit energy and raw data into BUDDY's body, transforming him into the One-Man-Army-Corps known as OMAC.
OMAC ran for 8 issues, ending in 1975
This is a great-looking copy of one of Kirby's later creations while at DC shortly before his return to Marvel Comics. The binding is strong, and the pages are supple and bright. There is minor roughness to some page edges, and a miniscule piece of a front corner is gone - but it's still a terrific part of any Kirby collection! Overstreet values this issue in this 6.0 FN condition at $15 . . . but we're offering it for just $13, along with our always-L•O•W shipping!
