Follow The #Kirby100 Tracks To “Manhunter Special #1” On The Wednesday Run

Biff Bam Pop’s celebration of the legendary Jack Kirby during the #Kirby100 party continues today!

This month would have seen the “King’s” 100th birthday, you see, and his numerous creations are front and center, as they’ve touched so many lives during the seven decade-long working career of the artist/writer/creator.

Lucky for us, DC Comics has been publishing one-off Kirby specials all month long, featuring some of his most loved – and most obscure – comic book creations.

So far this month, this column has highlighted:

Mister Miracle #1

The New Gods Special #1

The Sandman Special #1

None of these characters share the convoluted history of the protagonist in today’s double-sized, wholly exciting, release of the Kirby-created Manhunter #1!

Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.

It’s been a year or so since this superhero team has had their own title in the DC Comics Universe, but perhaps soon that will change. The Legion of Super-Heroes began as a one-off, a silly concept in a Superboy story, then grew into one of the most enduring continuities in the DCU, almost an entire universe unto itself. Meet me after the jump when I’ll talk about my love of the Legion of Super-Heroes.

While he is essentially the Golden Age version of the hero, the Batman of Earth-Two is quite the mysterious creature. In truth, he has only made a handful of comics appearances designated as such, and thus makes him even more mysterious. Meet me after the jump, and we’ll explore the friends, the family, the enemies, and the man himself – the Batman of Earth-Two.
