Now, for the first time, DC collects Kirby’s four series — THE NEW GODS, THE FOREVER PEOPLE, MISTER MIRACLE and SUPERMAN’S PAL, JIMMY OLSEN — in chronological order as they originally appeared. These comics spanned galaxies, from the streets of Metropolis to the far-flung worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips, as cosmic-powered heroes and villains struggled for supremacy.
THE FOURTH WORLD VOL. 1 features the debuts of Orion of the New Gods, the evil Darkseid, super-escape artist Mister Miracle and many others, and features numerous appearances by Superman, from the pages of SUPERMAN’S PAL, JIMMY OLSEN #133-139, FOREVER PEOPLE #1-3, NEW GODS #1-3 and MISTER MIRACLE #1-3!

The Kirby New Gods volume looks cool, I might actually check that out of a library (not bad for someone who hasn't bought a comic since 1972)...besides, the 70s Jimmy Olsen and this arc needs better coverage in Supermanica.

I don't make a habit of checking things out of libraries, because if I really like it I have to have it, so I would end up buying it anyway!

I really like those early appearances of Mister Miracle. The "Forever People" is good too. However, I would hate to think what that book would cost Downunder. Also, not very long ago I bought Vol. 1 of what I think was a two-volume set (trade paperback) of Kirby's Jimmy Olsen comics, so I find really big collections that cover diverse material a bit of a nuisance, because much of the stuff I already have, if that makes sense.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN VOL. 3 TP -- this I will buy of course.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES VOL. 1 TP -- this I will have to get too. Look at the writers... Look at the artists... That really old Legion stuff is great.

I was extremely disapointed when Jack Kirby's Fourth World titles were reprinted as Black and White paperbacks.  Kirby in B&W?  I tried to read one of them, but I just couldn't do it.  So I didn't buy any of them.

I've been waiting for a color collection for years - nay, decades - and combining all four titles into a chronological presentation is a brilliant idea.  It makes the whole thing into one, huge cosmic epic!  Big kudos to DC - this is one book I will certainly not miss.  I'm curious whether or not they'll be including Kirby's 1984 final issue, or his 1985 graphic novel epilogue, "The Hunger Dogs," but whether or not they do, this omnibus collection looks to me to be a sure-fire winner.
