datajunkie: Kirby's OMAC: An Overview

While many feel that The Fourth World saga was Jack Kirby's best work at DC (and in some ways it was), the 8 issues of OMAC crammed more topical future speculation between their covers than any other point in Jack's voluminous output.

Check out his whole extensive post.
