    Default Cover Contest Feb 24-Mar 2: Kirby's DC Creations

    In 1970 Jack Kirby rocked the comics world by leaving Marvel to go to DC and create a whole new pantheon of characters and places. DC put his books on a short leash, cancelling them well before they should have. But these creations went on to be a major part of the DC Universe. With DC using them to this day. The theme for this week is to post covers by ARTIST OTHER THAN KIRBY, using the characters he created after he came to DC in 1970 (no 40s/50's DC characters allowed).
    So it can be a New God or Mister Miracle or Kamandi or the Demon or any other from this period.

    Here is a Marshall Rogers Mister Miracle cover as an example.



    Here as Always now the Traditional RULES:

    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) Cover must be from a Published Comic Book, Graphic Novel, or Collected Volume!
    3) Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    4) Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday PST and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday PST (3 AM EST)!
    5) Vote by Posting the name in BOLD of the Poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most! A vote need not be in bold, but it does make it easier to Count-The-Votes!
    6) The Winner of the Contest is the Entry with the MOST Votes after the Voting-Period!
    7) It's Okay to Discuss the Covers but if you Think Someone's Entry Doesn't Fit the Theme or Violates the Rules, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!
    8) Plus: Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking --Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    9) AFTER the Tie-Breaker Vote, Voting Ends and the Winner is Declared by The One Who Started the Thread (or assigned surrogate) and Thus will do the Counting.
    10) HAVE FUN!


    (this is inspired by my recent rereading of Mister Miracle and The Demon)

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Did this "Darkseid" character ever appear anywhere after his Legion appearance?

    I'm assuming this counts since the Mark Shaw version was created by Kirby in 1st Issue Special #5 from 1975.
