DC-FiftyToo! Jack Kirby's The New Gods

Large image above

Here's my contribution to the DC Fifty-Too! blog, curated by Jon Morris. Jon asked everyone "If DC approached you and offered you any DC property - past or present - of your choice to be your own new ongoing part of the DC Universe, what would the cover to the first issue look like?" Every day leading up to the DC relaunch/pseudo-reboot more covers will be posted, so keep checking back!

Above are the various stages for creating the image: pencils, inks, colors and the final image with the logos. The top image is slightly larger so you can see the detail.

I was really happy to see, when Jon invited me to participate, no one had chosen The New Gods yet. It's one of my all-time favorite comics, along with the rest of Kirby's Fourth World books. It was a dream to draw these characters.
