Jack Kirby is the undeniable King of Comics. He created most of the heroes we all grew up with. But superheroes weren't his exclusive subject matter -- he also drew westerns, crime stories, romance comics . . . and Bible plates. In the 1970s, Kirby illustrated his favorite scenes from the Old Testament; not comic stories, but illustrative plates. "It was the best work of his life," says Roz Kirby. "The artwork he was most proud of."

For a look at the greatest work of the greatest illustrator comics has ever known -- will ever know -- be sure to order your copy of Dark Horse Presents #103.

And as if that's not enough, the most diverse anthology in comics runs the gamut this month, ranging from the slyly hip to the angst-ridden to the weird and supernatural. The world's first unborn superhero, "The Pink Tornado," debuts in this issue, "Mr. Painter" continues the story of a disaffected artiste, Alan Bland -- a coffee addict and tuba aficionado -- who becomes obsessed with an old painting he finds in his parents' home. Paul Pope, alternative comics genius, continues "The One Trick Rip-Off," a stylish, comics noir strip set in a near-future Los Angeles and focusing on a small group of thieves called the One Tricks. "Cal: Hairball" is a mystery featuring Cal McDonald, paranormal investigator, whose pursuit of some weird characters puts him hot on the trail of a murderer. This month, these weird characters show themselves as even weirder by killing Cal's client! Kitsch, comedy, comics noir, and Kirby -- if you're wanting anything more, you're just getting greedy!
