There came a time when the old gods died. And their deaths made way for the next generation of cosmic beings... the New Gods...

In 1971, Jack "King" Kirby - created the cosmic epic New Gods, telling the tales of two warring planets and their inhabitants, both good and evil. Now these classic tales are honoured and expanded upon in a collection of rare and hard-to-find stories from Orion and Jack Kirby's Fourth World, featuring Orion, Darkseid, Highfather, Mister Miracle and all the classic Fourth World characters.

Tales of the New Gods is the epic tale of the battle between good and evil for control of the universe. The battleground for the ongoing war between the gods of New Genesis and Apokolips - told across four separate yet intertwined comic book series - is planet Earth!

It is in the Tales of the New Gods that the palace intrigue through which Darkseid, the ruthless master of Apokolips, first rose to power over the lives of his mother, wife, and son is revealed... as are the tales of his offspring, minions, and foes, all set against the grand backdrop of a war in which the fate of the universe is at stake.

For those that can't get enough of good versus evil style confrontations, Tales of the New Gods delivers way more than you'd expect. An interesting collection that features some of the greatest names working in the comics industry.
