DC Celebrates Jack Kirby's 100th Birthday with a Series of Specials

In 1970 Jack Kirby left Marvel and moved his talents over to DC where he spent the next six years producing a variety of wild and wooly concepts. From the Fourth World of the New Gods to the distopian future of Kamandi all are concepts that are still an important part of the DCU. Starting today DC celebrates "The King's" centennial with a series of one shots featuring all of his concepts by today's top talent. NEW GODS SPECIAL #1 is by Shane Davis & Walter Simonson in a feature length story, Orion and Lightray come to the aid of Forager and his people, as Kalibak has established a brutal dictatorship over the Bug colony. In confronting his evil brother, Orion faces the darker side of his own nature. NEWSBOY LEGION & BOY COMMANDOS SPECIAL #1 is by  Howard Chaykin as Kirby's two wartime kid gangs share their first adventure together in a novel-length tale. SANDMAN SPECIAL #1 is by Dan Jurgens, Steve Orlando, Jon Bogdanove & Rick Leonardi and features two new tales starring Kirby's costumed Master of Nightmares from the 1970s. MANHUNTER SPECIAL #1 by Keith Giffen, Nick Bradshaw & Steve Rude and has big-game hunter and private detective Paul Kirk marshalling his skills to fight crime as the masked vigilante known as Manhunter. But now crime has reached epidemic proportions that may push him to the limits. DARKSEID SPECIAL #1 by Mark Evanier, Paul Levitz & Scott Kolins and tells a tale starring one of Jack's greatest villains. BLACK RACER & SHILO NORMAN SPECIAL #1 by Reginald Hudlin,  Denys Cowan & Bill Sienkiewicz has Shilo Norman has taken up the mantle of Mister Miracle, following the example of Scott Free by cheating death on a daily basis until the Black Racer comes calling.
