“We are excited to share with readers Kirby’s original vision for the epic’s end in Vol. 4 of the FOURTH WORLD OMNIBUS series,” says Georg Brewer, VP — Design and DC Direct Creative.  “This collection features 24 pages at the size that Kirby penciled them, the way they looked before being altered to fit the larger trim size of the HUNGER DOGS graphic novel. Faithfully inked by Mike Royer, these pages are incorporated within the HUNGER DOGS story, which is completely re-colored with a sensibility consistent with the previous OMNIBUS hard covers.  Along with the Fourth World character entries he drew for WHO’S WHO: THE DEFINITIVE DIRECTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE, these exciting, rarely seen aspects of Kirby’s work and this important story make this a must-have for every serious comics collector.”

The fourth and final omnibus features the Hunger Dogs, Mister Miracle #10-18, Forever People #11, New Gods #11, and 1984’s New Gods #6.

I’m halfway through the first volume right now, with the second volume waiting in the wings.  Didn’t think I was going to like it, but I’m hooked on the collection.
