KAV'S WTF?! COMIC BOOK COVER: OMAC #1 BY DC COMICS

Champion City Comics artist and comic book guru, Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj shared with me a photo of the cover of 1974's OMAC #1 from DC Comics. After looking at this cover all I could think was, "WTF is that?!"

OMAC stands for One-Man Army Corps and this series was developed by Jack Kirby following the cancellation of New Gods. OMAC was apparently Kirby's version of a futuristic Captain America. This #1 cover by Jack Kirby is truly bizarre because we see OMAC throwing a woman in a box who appears to be in pieces or bent in an odd way while partially submerged in water. I know the purpose of covers is to sell the comic book, but this is not one of Kirby's best in my opinion.

  2. I like the way he put "One Man Army'? like it's in question....Kirby wasn't the best at using punctuation and his random use of "quote" marks was truly "bizarre"....
