Well, sadly, quality and popularity don't always go hand-in-hand, but you'd think DC could parlay Kirby's popularity into support for this project.

My 4th World scans are slowly running out, which is why I'm being so frugal with them. Enjoy 'em while they last.

Another page from New Gods #18.

Of all the unreprinted DC material from the 70s, New Gods and Mister Miracle are at the top of my list for must-buy.

I don't know whether or not DC fans frequent the Crisis board, but I reviewed Sword of Sorcery and Iron Wolf here. They are of a slightly older vintage than the Mr. Miracle and New Gods reboots, but they are equally interesting and deserving of being rescued from obscurity. See posts #62-64.

This is my last scan (for the foreseeable future) and I think you've already seen this image before. So be it.Keep the home fires burning lads until DC sees the error of its ways.

I just finished reading this thread. Lots of good stuff! I'll give the mapping another go with the stuff I missed.

Looking forward to it, but to be honest there was so much sub-standard material produced later on, that I'm not interested in a comprehensive representation and I wonder if there are enough interested parties to sustain such an effort.

I don't know if Don Newton and/or Marshall Rogers have any kind of marquee value (left). Certainly not as much as they deserve.
I think a John Byrne-centric volume would have a lot of sales potential.


Now that Simonson's Orion is getting its own volume, all I really want is volumes devoted to the late 70s relaunches i.e. Return of the New Gods by Don Newton (including the chapters in Adventure Comics of course and Secret Origins) and Mr. Miracle by Marshall Rogers & Mike Golden.  That would be about 19 issues, which is probably a bit too slime for an Omnibus, but I certainly hope they don't dilute it with the dreadful series from the 1980s.
Byrne did around 25 issues all tolled, which would make a nice creator-centric volume.

You can get a pretty hefty volume if you include all of the major New Gods and Mister Miracle stories from 1974-1980:

New Gods (16 issues):

1st Issue Special #13: Return of the New Gods (1976)
New Gods #12-19 (1977-78)
DC Special Series #10: Secret Origins of Super-Heroes (1978)
Super-Team Family #15: The Flash and the New Gods (1978)
Adventure Comics #459-460 (1978)
JLA #183-185 (1980)

Mister Miracle (11 issues):

Brave and the Bold #112 (1974)
Brave and the Bold #128 (1976)
Mister Miracle #19-25 (1977-78)
Brave and the Bold #138 (1977)
DC Comics Presents #12 (1979)

And even more if you include SSOSV #1-5.

Oh, so not so 'slime' - ouch! - after all.
I would prefer not to have the team-ups with Bats and Supes (even if some of them are by my hero Jim Aparo) because they really don't fit in stylistically with the relaunches.
Nevertheless, if it makes an additional 4th World volume possible, it seems like a good compromise.

Jack Kirby's 4th World by John Byrne also seems like low hanging fruit. I wonder how well the Simonson Orion volume sold.

Thank you for starting this thread.   I picked up all of these back issues based on what I saw here.  I'm a big fan of Rogers and Golden and my appreciation for Don Newton is growing with each passing moment.

Secret Society of Super Villains. Very ordinary series but with lots of 4th World characters dotted around it if I remember rightly. There are trades available.

I always feel a tinge of sadness when I see work by Newton and consider how young he was when he died. He was so damned good.

Yes he was, I was a huge fan of his and always anticipated the new Captain Marvel and Batman stories he worked on. I've been going to San Diego Comic-Con every year since 1978 and one of my greatest regrets was the time I saw Don Newton sitting at his table by himself with no one around and I could tell he was hoping someone would stop by, but I was too shy to go over and talk to him.
