One of Jack Kirby's final projects for DC Comics in the 1970s presents a dystopian future in which ordinary people are pushed to violence to relieve their stress, and a corporate nobody called Buddy Blank is recruited by the Global Peace Agency to become the super-powered being known as O.M.A.C. -- One Man Army Corps. In these 1970s tales, Jack Kirby introduced O.M.A.C. -- One Man Army Corps! Powered by the orbiting, sentient satellite known as Brother Eye, O.M.A.C. has been charged by the Global Peace Agency with stopping the evil schemes of power hungry millionaires who seek to exploit those less fortunate than them. It's a vision of the future unlike any you've seen before.

Jack King Kirby s comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including Sandman, The Newsboy Legion and Manhunter, and for Marvel including Captain America, The Young Allies and the Kid Commandos. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boy s Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel s Fantastic Four cemented Kirby s reputation as comics preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including The Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic Fourth World Trilogy, which was followed by The Demon and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
