Kirbay in full force!

This is the legendary Kirby at the top of his game. His own creations, his own vision, 100% imagination of the finest order. It's great superhero comics. A story that winds and twists and mosaics together rather than a straightforward, simplistic linear narrative in parts. Think tapestry, not single coloured thread.

It's a treasure to have the oppurtunity to read one of the driving forces of 20th Century comics in top form, at the pinnacle of his career. One can see Kirby grow in these pages, and especially see the confidence grow compared to reading, say, the Fantastic Four.

It's great superhero comics. A product very much of its time but still relevant, still hyperkinetic in its energy and style.

I loved it.
