Forever People by Jack Kirby

Onea my weird passions is see'n a fav in black'n white that I've always seen in color.  I've occasionally looked at this georgeous page from Kirby Unleashed and thought, "maybe I'll see it in b&w somedaty but surely not as big and beautiful" (yes, I'm riff'n on Big Barda and Beautiful Dreamer and yes, I forgot to stop call'n you Shirley).  Well, stop the presses and alert the media!  This Artist's Edition cover is as big as ya wanna
