JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #797.536.167!
SERIES OF THE AGES: Jack Kirby - Jack Kirby's
Fourth World Omnibus (DC Comics) :: I've said it before and I'll say it again: The greatest
comic book creator in history was, and forever will be, Jack "King" Kirby! Jack
Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus has been out for some time now and all four volumes are
an essential must-read that you've just gotta have! Painted with broad bravura strokes, not only is this the greatest graphic
novel Jack Kirby ever created, it's an enduring masterwork for the ages and an everlasting legacy which will never be equaled
by anyone else!
F'rinstance, let's look at Volume Three of his mind-bending Fourth World saga which defines dynamism! What will happen
when you enter the Mangle Machine? And should you survive, will your heart be able to withstand the pulse-pounding terror
when you come face to face with the id entity known only as The Lump? Then, as if all that wasn't enough, the King adds the
ever-livin' Deadman into the mix in what amounts to some extreme high stakes senses-shattering shenanigans with nothing less
than the future fate of the entire free world at stake!
Presenting the King at
his latter-day best, Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus
is the all-time absolute greatest non-stop action-packed adventure ever committed to pen and paper! Don't ask! Just buy it!
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: American Speedway - Ship Of Fools (MVD Audio/Prophase) :: The only thing that these
unabashed Bullettheads care about is hammering out
their hi-octane screem screeds. The guitars are heavily harsh, the drumming is moronically metronomic, the bass is brutally
bludgeoning and the keyboards are the best of all BECAUSE THERE ARE NO KEYBOARDS. Whaddya think this is anyway, some kinda
hoity-toity art fag fiesta? When these speed freaks brag that they've got "the nerves of Steve McQueen and a heart of
steel," you'd best be bucklin' up. Lieutenant, where's my witness?
Be seeing you!
