Jack Kirby — Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus: Volume Three (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. The first two volumes of Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus have been out for some time now and they're 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.

Now Jack is back with this third exciting volume of his mind-bending Fourth World saga and it's even more dynamic than ever! 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 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 when Volume Four is coming out! Just buy Volume Three now!

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?

Just like a car you're pleasing to behold!
