Fourth World Problems – Omnibus Has A Major Printing Error

Once upon a time, a misprinted panel in the first printing of the Crisis Of Infinite Earths hardcover collection meant a full recall and replacement or a very expensive item, and the firing of a senior and longstanding DC Comics employee.

Fourth World Omnibus

After co-creating comic book heroes such as THE FANTASTIC FOUR and THE HULK, legendary writer/artist Jack Kirby came to DC Comics in 1970 to write and illustrate four interlocking series known collectively as "The Fourth World."Now, as part of the celebration of the 100th birthday of Jack Kirby, DC collects Kirby's entire runs on these four series–THE NEW GODS, THE FOREVER PEOPLE, MISTER MIRACLE and SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN–In a single volume. These comics spanned galaxies, from the streets of Metropolis to the far-flung twin worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips, as cosmic-powered heroes and villains struggle for supremacy, and the world-conquering Darkseid adventured across Earth for the deadly Anti-Life Equation.

Collects SUPERMAN'S PAL JIMMY OLSEN #133-139 and 141-148, THE NEW GODS #1-11, THE FOREVER PEOPLE #1-11, MISTER MIRACLE #1-18, plus later stories from NEW GODS #4 and DC GRAPHIC NOVEL #4.
