Biographie de l'auteur

Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including Captain America, the Young Allies, the Kid Commandos, Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boys' Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's Fantastic Four cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by The Demon, Omac and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994 --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

L'univers du Fourth World regroupe les 4 titres New Gods, Mister Miracle, Jimmy Olsen et Forever People. Ces séries ont marqué les comics des 70's car il n'existait aucune épopée de ce genre, en fait il n'existait rien de semblable ! Cette épopée n'a pas connu le succès escompté et l'éditeur DC a utilisé Kirby pour d'autres titres ; c'est un privilège de retrouver cette série en édition de qualité, comportant quelques paroles d'experts (Mark Evanier en particulier), comme certainement Kirby l'aurait voulu. Je regrette personnellement juste le très faible nombre de reproductions des dessins originaux, alors que de ridicules agrandissements de dessins comblent les trous de la mise en page (quel graphiste a eu cette idée ridicule?).
On peut faire de nombreux reproches à la série : les dialogues sont parfois gauches, les événements invraisemblables, le rythme parfois incohérent, on aime le style caricatural Kirby (on devient alors fan) ou on déteste (la plupart des lecteurs, et c'est un fan qui l'admet). Le papier n'est pas à la hauteur de certains recueils récents, si l'on compare par exemple aux rééditions des oeuvres de Kirby lors de sa 2ème période Marvel (Devil Dinosaur ou le Démon, par exemple), mais mon expérience est qu'un livre disparait suite à un prêt malencontreux, des infiltrations, un carton perdu dans un déménagement... bien avant que son papier ne se détériore du fait de sa mauvaise qualité. Cette édition est, au final, d'une qualité suffisante.

Kirby touche au Mythe avec les "New Gods", s'essaie à l'humour potache avec "Jimmy Olsen" - où le fabuleux est farfelu et extrapole de manière invraisemblable des inventions mécaniques et techniques, s'adonnant à une science-fiction délurée qui est amusante mais pas toujours crédible - et puis Superman a été redessiné de manière classique mais dénuée d'intérêt. "Mr. Miracle" part d'un principe répétitif et invraisemblable, l'idée d'un homme qui a des moyens d'évasion incroyable, mais dans ce second volume "Omnibus", apparaît la formidable, l'épique Big Barda, qui sauve complètement la série. Quant aux "Forever People", ils sont sympathiques, et il y a de bonnes idées, notamment que les parcs d'attraction cachent des intentions diaboliques, ici matérialisées par le peuple d'Apokolips. Mais le plus beau c'est les "New Gods", avec le romantique Orion, transfuge d'Apokolips, et des images d'un dynamisme fabuleux, une trame mythologique à souhait, une netteté philosophique remarquable, accompagnée d'une violence réaliste, la mort étant présente, c'est épique. Alors Kirby était digne de Tolkien, que selon Mark Evannier il s'efforçait d'imiter sur le principe. Même si les compagnons de Jimmy Olsen sont un peu comme des Hobbits, aussi !

The New Gods Sage Come Together 23 septembre 2007
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I had debated getting this book for sometime, as with the first volume my impression was, upon handling it, if felt light for such a thick book, but after removing the shrink wrap I was pleasantly surprised.The paper felt just right, and while reminiscent of the type of paper used in comics, it was clearly of a higher quality.

Then lets talk color, they were beautiful, you feel like you are back in the 1970's buying the comics right off the rack. Some collections recolor the colors of the book in a garish manner, not here, though I don't have the originals to compare them to directly the way this book was colored was a joy to behold and felt true to the artist's intentions.

The binding was not tight, easy to read and stayed open.

Though all the stories in this volume have been reprinted before, remember all but the Jimmy Olsen were printed in horrid black and white (what other DC collections, except for their showcase line, are in black and white) with the added insult of tones being added to the art to rendering it murky.

What is really impressive is how the story reads when collected in the order it is published. Unless you bought the books off the racks in the 1970's or you actually made an effort to find their publication dates nobody has recently read them as Kirby had intended. The cut from one section of the saga is interesting, Jimmy Olsen is at the fringe, Mister Miracle a little bit closer, Forever People even deeper, and the New Gods at the center of it all. You can see more and more characters getting drawn into the story.

A lot of people will decry the silly story with Don Rickles, but when read in context it shows that everyone was being drawn into this cosmic war, plus some comic relief is much needed when you have the high melodrama of the New Gods going on.

Extras include a hefty helping of original kirby pencil art at the back of the book. I wish they would have included the house ads, oh well.

The next volume (#3) will pack the most punch as you come to some of Kirby's strongest stuff yet (The Pact) and Scott Free's escape to earth is shown in a flashback story you will not soon forget.

See you there.

Awesome! 28 septembre 2007
Par Stephen Roth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The first thing I did after removing the shrinkwrap was to check the format of this book against volume 1. It is exactly the same, the same paper, the same binding, so if you hate volume 1 you will hate volume 2 as well. The stories seem to be getting better and better, and the only word I could come up with to describe it is "Awesome!" I really like having some of Kirby's pencils as a bonus at the back of the book, and the comentaries by other artists at the beginning and end give context and insite into what Kirby was trying to accomplish. I think he succeeded and I can hardly wait for volume 3.

The King of Creativity 13 octobre 2007
Par Neil Ferreira - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is some of Kirby's finest work. Has anyone created more epic characters than Jack? Nope. It's a great visual feast and I very much like the way it's produced. Anyone who complains about the paper should step back and give it another chance and look at the merits of this paper choice. I personally think this paper should be used for all these types of reprints of old material - Masterworks, Archives , etc. In my humble opinion this paper presents this material with beautiful color but without the over slickness of the paper used on many Marvel Masterworks editions. It preserves the feel of the old comics but with much better color saturation and registration. There's something about the really slick paper that just doesn't lend itself to these classic works. It's hard to articulate but I have been won over by this format. Great job DC - keep it up!

Kirby unleashed! 22 juillet 2008
Par J. Carroll - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In Volume II, Kirby starts hitting his targets, particularly with Mike Royer's inks actually bringing out Kirby's wonderful artwork, rather than shortchanging it as Colletta's did.
Jimmy Olsen- This remains the problem book in the series as the inking remains Colletta and the stories lack Kirby's usual creativity. The rest of the Don Rickles story, Universal monster clones and the Loch ness monster (Who looks a great deal like Fin Fang Foom) are some of the storylines here.
The Forever People- The book still seems to be an afterthought but things improve in this volume. Darkseid continues his search for the anti-life equation and The Forever People gain the assistance of Sunny Sumo, who despite his unfortunate name, adds some excitement to the book. This character adds an interesting element to the book where the other characters seem to be types not fully formed. There's also a nice section where Serifan, Kirby's cosmic cowboy, has to deal with the loss (not really) of his companions. Kirby shows his pain with grace and feeling.
Mr.Miracle- The character continues his singular battles with some of Apokolips' minions, with the death traps gaining in complexity with Royer's inks now bringing all of Kirby's work to light. This volume also contains "Funky Flashman" Kirby's very broad interpretation of Stan Lee, who comes off very poorly in Kirby's very funny take on Lee's larger than life personality.
New Gods- This book really takes off in volume II. Kirby's story "The Glory Boat," is probably worth the price of admission. Continuing Orion's battle with the aquatic "Deep Six," the story combines some of Kirby's most dynamic art with a story about the generational differences between a ultra-conservative father and a pacifist son confronted by the cosmic forces involved in the New Genesis/Apokolips War. The story touches on some very strong themes and remains one of Kirby's best.
Volume II is where Kirby's ideas start to jell and his art starts to reach its zenith for the series. This is what the Fourth World could have been if enough time and support was forthcoming from DC and the fans.

As the Fourth World Turns: Solid volume by a master craftsman of comics 2 février 2010
Par Kevin M. Derby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This second volume of "Jack Kirby's Fourth World" is a better read than the first one and shows how Jack Kirby continued to expand his epic vision that would revolutionize comic books. This volume continues running issues of "Jimmy Olson", "The Forever People", "The New Gods" and "Mr. Miracle." The art is spectacular and Kirby's writing has improved from the start issues in the first volume. The introduction and conclusion are excellent and add great insight into the work and the man who masterminded it all. As has been noted by several reviewers, Mike Royer's tenure as Kirby's inker helped tremendously.

This volume contains some excellent issues including "The Glory Boat" from "New Gods" and the introduction of Big Barda in the "Mr. Miracle" issues. There is also a funny and harsh portrayal of Stan Lee as Funky Flashman in the Mr. Miracle comics. The "Jimmy Olson" comics remain very inconsistent with a story involving Don Rickles (yes, that Don Rickles), the Loch Ness monster, and a vampire doing little to add to the "Fourth World." "The Forever People" as a group contain characters that really are not well developed though they face some of the most memorable of Kirby's villains including Glorious Godfrey and Desaad. However "New Gods" and "Mr. Miracle" are both excellent comics with memorable heroes, supporting characters and villains. These two comics serve as the heart and soul of the "Fourth World."
