A jolly little ad that ran across the DC line in early 1972 drawing attention to Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Tetralogy. Not that it really was a ‘tetralogy’–Jimmy Olsen, while certainly written and drawn by Kirby for some fifteen issues, only has tertiary connections to the other three books. Blockbusters they may have been, but why they were referred to as the “Fourth World” at all is something of a mystery. Sounds good though, and I guess that’s enough.
