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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The first superhero Graphic Novel is also the biggest and STILL the greatest! 30 octobre 2015
Par Brad Barnes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Jack Kirby's Fourth World epic is best-remembered for introducing Darkseid to the DC Universe and also for Mister Miracle, who was a member of Justice International (even though it would have been more accurately called Justice League Intergalactic)! What Kirby accomplished back in 1970-1972 is much more impressive than that. With 4 interlocking titles (Jimmy Olsen, New Gods, Forever People, Mister Miracle), over 55 comics, published about every two weeks, Kirby delivered the equivalent of 5 years of comics in the space of 2 years! Beyond the sheer speed of Kirby's typewriter and pencil, the Fourth World is bursting with creativity: dozens of new characters are introduced and each costume design is ornate. These costumes are actually uniforms designating each character's allegiance and rank in the war raging between peace-loving New Genesis and mercy-crushing Apokolips. Visually, the Fourth World is the most coherent mainstream graphic novel ever produced, as well as the longest!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kirby Unlimited 14 octobre 2012

I loved this book as I did the first two since Kirby never let's you down. He shows unlimited creativity in each of these comics. Readers get to see Kirby's last contributions to Jimmy Olsen, while he continues with his other three projects. His art is consistently astounding and his stories are spellbinding. More new characters show up: The Forager, a new hero for the The New Gods; Chief of Police Turpin turns out to be quite a character; Professor Volcanum (a character with a resemblance to Captain Nemo) and billionaire Mister Bates. The sexy Big Barda also has a greater presence in the MM venture. However, readers will miss Infinity Man, generated by The Forever People. Infinity was a super unique concept that I missed in their stories. Sunny Sumo also disappears in this volume.

In addition to this, Kirby starts giving us background stories about the war between New Genesis and Apokalips in "The Pact" (The New Gods #7) and "Himon" (Mister Miracle #9). In these issues readers will also find out about the origins of Orion and Scott Free. Although almost every story here (I confess I wasn't so attracted by the Deadman stories in the Forever People) is unforgettable, Mister Miracle's match with the Lump, and the way he defeats the Lump makes it quite unique in superhero lore. I have never seen a resolution like this one ever in comic books. I think I mentioned this before about Kirby, that he must have been an influence on George Lucas's Star Wars: Kirby always starts his stories right in the middle; he doesn't mess around with intros. With two great pictures, a one-page illustration and a two-page illustration sets the conflict, mood, and atmosphere for his stories. And that is just great. These are great comics!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Fourth World reaches its zenith 22 juillet 2008
Par J. Carroll - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In Volume III, Kirby's best work on the Fourth World appears. Even Jimmy Olsen picks up due to Royer's inks adding a sense of action formerly missing. This is the volume where Kirby hits his peak and all of the books reach high points in both story and art.
Jimmy Olsen- "Caveman" Jimmy seems to be throwback to the old Jimmy Olsen stories where strange things would happen to him issue after issue. It is a fun bit, but the highlight of the entire run appears in this volume. "Superman in Supertown" finds the man of steel in New Genesis, seeing what life might be like in a place where his power is not needed to constantly save the day. Although he decides to return to help Jimmy and the Newsboys, I think while the dialogue firmly makes the reader think Superman wants to go back, there is a body language message of how relaxed Superman could find himself in this realm where everyone has power and few need defense from the universe's dangers.
The Forever People- Starting off with a history lesson as The Forever People return from various points in Earth's history, including the Lincoln assassination (where of course they can't stop it), Serifan's stand off against the minions of evil and then tricking Darkseid out of finally gaining control of the anti-life equation, The forever people starts well but falls off drastically by the forced use of Deadman for two issues. It would be hard to imagine a worse combination and as you can imagine it doesn't work at all.
Mister Miracle- Finally Mr. Miracle confronts his early tormentor Granny Goodness and the readers get to see how the war between New Genesis and Apokolips began when "The Pact" (more on that later) was broken in "Himon." These stories move the concepts behind the series along and provide some opportunity for the characters of Scott Free and his love Big Barda develop and creates an emotional setting that the other books lack.
The New Gods- This book continues to be the cornerstone of Kirby's Fourth World. "The Pact" a story that shows how the peace was first brokered between New Genesis and Apokolips is a wonderful example of the scope of Kirby's storytelling. The art and epic scope of the story remains one of Kirby's strongest and when combined with "The Death Wish of Terrible Turpin" and "The Bug" they make up Kirby's strongest string of books in the series. The art and story were now firing on all cylinders and just as the book was reaching its beast the end was looming.
This is the last book where the true Kirby effort was coming through. Jimmy Olsen was mercifully ended, albeit with the best story in the series and the other books, with the exception of Mr. Miracle were on their way out. This volume gives you a hint of what might have been accomplished if Kirby was bale to continue unfettered, but this was not to be.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 The King at his best - And less... 15 mars 2010
Par David Lawrence - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This volume is a bit tougher to rate than it's predecessors. It contains some of the best work Jack Kirby ever produced side by side with some real clunkers.

Though in fairness some of that is not entirely Jack's fault.

The Pact - which I remembered with startling clarity nearly four decades after I'd first read it, and probably a quarter century since I'd last seen it - is nearly unforgettable. The Death Wish of Terrible Turpin and Himon are right there beside it.

And Kirby's art looks as good as it ever did, with inker Mike Royer becoming ever more comfortable and the last remaining trace of the lackluster Vince Colletta relegated to the pages of Jimmy Olsen.

But clearly Jack was losing interest in Supreman's pal as his tenure on the book drew to a close. Certainly the experience of having his lead characters redrawn by others had to be something he was losing patience with. How an artist of his caliber tolerated it for so long is beyond my understanding.

And though the fault lies not with Jack the two issue visit of Deadman to the pages of the Forever People might just be the worst shoe-horning together of two incompatible concepts since Batman teamed up with Jerry Lewis.

(Actually, I'm not sure that ever happened. But trust me, it couldn't have been much worse.)

That idea, however, was the brainchild of DC publisher Carmine Infantino. He asked Jack to revamp the character, then complained that it wasn't the Deadman he knew and loved. In all fairness to Carmine, he was a great artist, but how DC survived his tenure as publisher is beyond me.

I can't help but wonder, in retrospect, if Jack might have been better served had had launched one book instead of four. New Gods is consistently better written and more directed than its sister books, and churning out a sprawling epic through four titles at the pace Jack did it was nearly impossible, even for a man of his massive talent.

But still, Jack is Jack, and even in its lesser moments the tales are always entertaining. That the work in this book is on balance of slightly lesser import than that in the first two volumes is hardly damning.

So get it. Read The Pact, Himon, The Death Wish of Terrible Turpin. And if you decide skip Deadman meets the Forever People, well...I'm sure Jack will understand.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 among the best work KIRBY ever produced. 3 janvier 2008
Par grew up in the 1960s - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
the blurring problem mentioned in the above review (by AGONISTES) is NOT PRESENT in the copy of JACK KIRBY'S FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS VOL. 3 that i have just received from amazon. the book seems to be mistake free for once. along with FANTASTIC FOUR, THOR and some other great stuff for MARVEL, this series represents some of the best work KIRBY ever did. the stories, written by KIRBY are very wild and reflect the scope of the KING'S imagination and the wild times in which they were written. the artwork as always with KIRBY is fantastic. originally some, including myself were very unhappy with the form in which these reprints where presented. over time and 3 volumes i've come to like this format more and more. the artwork looks very much like the original comic books and the color reconstruction is excellent. when KIRBY moved to DC for a time he was allowed to do whatever he wanted. the results (this series) are among the very best comic books KIRBY ever produced. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
