Jack Kirby: The DC Legacy // artwork by Jack Kirby (1971 and Beyond)

All these milestones include to work of the great late Jack Kirby, his legacy for DC Comics! While not as high profile as his work on Marvel Comics, Jack left his mark on DC with a rich cast of characters that are still around to this day. From top to bottom: The New Gods, which chronicled the adventures of Orion, Darkseid and another DC mainstays in a set up called “The Fourth World”; Mister Miracle, a.k.a Scott Lang, Big Barda’s husband; The Forever People a spin-off of the New Gods universe created by him; Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, the launch tittle in which he introduced all his concepts and characters for DC; Kamandy, The Last Boy On Earth; The Demon, later renamed Ethrigan and featured in the animated DC Universe; OMAC a character inspired in Captain America; his last collaboration with his pal Joe Simon, a relaunch of “The Sandman” before he went to the Vertigo imprint.
