JACK KIRBY 100 SPECIALS: Darkseid, New Gods & More


I have always been interested by the New Gods in DC Comics. They are powerful heroes and villains, with a direct connection to the ultimate DC baddie, Darkseid. I would really like to see the New Gods be introduced, in some way, to the DC cinematic universe. Especially since the DC cinematic universe will be dealing with Mother Boxes, SteppenWolf (who is the Uncle of Darkseid), and ultimately Darkseid and the Apokolips dimension. There is deep lore here that would expand the depth of the mythology of the movies to a level Marvel simply cannot touch.

 

From Youtube:

Jack Kirby gave us countless stories featuring highly imaginative characters such as Mister Miracle, Darkseid, Orion, Manhunter, the Sandman and more. Now, in honor of Kirby’s 100th birthday, it’s our turn. The Jack Kirby 100 Specials are six extra-sized one-shots featuring original stories (and a few classics) starring the King’s iconic characters. In this DC All Access comics clip, we look at these unique comics, which will all be available in stores tomorrow.
