Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: NEW GODS, the cornerstone of Jack Kirby's early 1970s "Fourth World" line of comics, is collected in its entirety in a single trade paperback.

In 1971, following his move from Marvel Comics to DC, writer/artist Jack Kirby unleashed the "Fourth World" comics -- four interconnected series. The centerpiece of these titles was NEW GODS, which introduced the warring worlds of Apokolips, ruled by the dread Darkseid, and New Genesis, led by the philosophical Highfather. A sprawling cast of characters was led by Orion, son of Darkseid, raised on New Genesis as a savage warrior on a world of peace. And while Darkseid scoured the Earth in search of the deadly Anti-Life Equation, Orion battled his minions Kalibak, Canto and others, with the help of his New Genesis allies Lightray, Metron and others.

Collects NEW GODS #1-11, plus the 48-page story "Even Gods Must Die," written and illustrated by Kirby in 1984, and the original 1985 graphic novel by Kirby, THE HUNGER DOGS, which was designed to be a bookend to the entire "Fourth World" epic.
