Jack Kirby's New Gods #1 Splash

Jack Kirby made a mistake! He drew page 1 of 1971's New Gods #1 without allowing room for the indicia at the bottom of the page. Jack Adler and the Production Department at DC Comics had to make the artwork fit, and how they did it will almost certainly surprise you. I never knew about this before!

An article in the archives of the Jack Kirby Museum written by Rand Hoppe tells and shows the details, and you can read to your amazement over here. It's apparent from this article and from what I told you yesterday that Mr. Hoppe is a Scholar of Kirbydom and I hereby present him with an honorary Key to the Hayfamzone.
