In 2000, legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson, best known for his work on
DC's Manhunter and Marvels' Thor, treated comics fans to his
vision of Jack Kirby's Fourth World mythology. At the center of the
series was the conflict between Orion, born on the violent world of Apokolips
but raised on peaceful New Genesis, and his father, Darkseid, ruler of
Apokolips. Focusing on the clash between father and son, the series features
most of the Fourth World heroes and villains created by Jack Kirby, as Darkseid
seeks the deadly anti-life equation - and Orion battles to stop him from
eradicating life as we know it! This title also includes short stories written
by Simonson and illustrated by Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, Jim
Lee, and others.
Collects Orion #1-25 and stories from Jack Kirby's Fourth World
#9-11 and #13.
