This trade contains Mr. Miracle Special #1, plus shorter stories from Jack Kirby's Fourth World #2 - 20 and Orion #3 - 4, 6 - 8, 10, 12, 15, & 18 - 19. For the most part, these are prequels to Kirby's original works, containing early adventures of the New Gods. There are a few duds, but most fit very well with Kirby's vision. See the origins of Darkseid and Kanto, the early adventures of Scott Free, and even the birth of Orion! The impressive talent list includes Mark Evanier, John Byrne, Walt Simonson, Jeph Loeb, Mark Millar, Steve Rude, Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Arthur Adams, Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Eddie Campbell, and Steve Ditko. In the immortal words of The King: "Don't ask, just buy it!"
I give my low review rating ONLY because it was extremely misleading and not what I wanted. I haven't actually read too many of the stories inside.
So if you're just a fan of the New Gods or Mr. Miracle, this book would be for you. But if you want to buy it for Frank Miller, or Jim Lee, you will be extremely disappointed like I am.
