Are you ready for the World That’s — Over?!? That’s right, after eight classic issues, Jack Kirby brought OMAC to an end on a screaming cliff hanger. So, as a bonus to you, here is an eight-page Jim Starlin story that wraps up that cliff hanger and begins a new story. Too bad Jim Starlin didn’t stay on the series for long — it looks like he might have done the King proud! The OMAC back-up feature lasted ten issues in Warlord in 1980. Jim Starlin later got another chance for a Kirby tribute when he wrote and drew The Death of the New Gods in 2007.
