Fourth World

Hello, my name is Jeremy Massie, and I'm addicted to Jack Kirby's Fourth World books. Back in the early seventies Kirby jumped the Marvel ship, and went across town to work for DC. He started his Epic in an established book Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen. He then started up three new titles: The Forever People, The New Gods, and Mister Miracle...where he fleshed out his epic further. DC has released the 'Fourth World Omnibus' collecting these books in order of their release. I am addicted to this stuff!! I'm familiar with Kirby's Marvel work, but have never gotten into the DC stuff before. As far as early Marvel goes I was more of a Ditko fan. I liked Kirby but, Ditko was always more interesting to me. This Fourth World stufff has me hooked. I can't stop reading it...My social life is gone. My mind is blown. I want a boom tube so I can cut down on travel time.
