Inspired by his work with Stan Lee on The Fantastic Four and creating the new Marvel Universe, Jack moved to DC and created an entire new universe of heroes and history, from scratch.
"Encompassed with impossible new worlds, iconic new characters and sweeping new mythologies, its debut elicited unprecedented levels of excitement and anticipation from comics readers everywhere."
Bonus pages of concept drawings, character profiles from Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe, and Fourth World Pinups.
