From the publisher:

The Jack Kirby New Gods: Artist's Edition collects Issues 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of NEW GODS--the most important Fourth World book. Written and drawn by Jack Kirby, with inks by Mike Royer on all but the first two issues, this classic collection was originally published by DC Comics and is the very first Artist's Edition to feature the legendary artistic prowess of "King Kirby!" Nearly every page of this Artist's Edition has been scanned from the original art, and is presented in the multi award-winning format that was conceived and first presented by IDW Publishing! Jack Kirby has correctly been called the King of Comics. In a career that began in the Golden Age of Comics, Kirby virtually kick-started the medium. He created (or co-created): Captain America, Manhunter, The Newsboy Legion, The Fantastic Four, Challengers of the Unknown, The X-Men, The Incredible Hulk… the list goes on and on.

Now, for the first time ever, you can see Jack Kirby's stunning originals in all their full-sized glory--You think you've seen Jack Kirby's art before? You ain't seen nothing yet!

This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector. Steve worked as Jack Kirby's assistant, at Filmation, and Sid and Marty Krofft, before forming his own company Puppet Studio in 1984 contributing to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "Men in Black 1 & 2", "Mighty Joe Young", "Muppets" and numerous other TV series and feature films.
