I purchased this item because I am a big fan of Jack Kirby. I already own most of the original run, but had to have this one. Without color to smother the line work a fan can see Kirby's brilliance more defined. His writing is blocky, but his storytelling greatness is undeniable. I highly recommend this book to any of his fans, and suggest new readers at the very least give it a try, you will be surprised by the imagination he brought to the story.

The Forever people comics is a part of the "Fourth world", one of the major work of the great Jack Kirby.
Those characters come from New Genesis, a planet of good will and high technology, opposed to Apokolyps, the dark planet where people suffer under the domination of the tyrannical Darkseid. Unfortunately, the war between those planets has come to Earth. And like "Mister Miracle", "Orion", and others from New Genesis, they arrive on Earth to face the demons sent by Darkseid and meet humans overtaken by events.
An original story, great graphics, a lot of imagination, endearing characters and their terrific foes, that is the heart of the story.

This was not the hardback volume as I expected and also all the artwork inside was black-and-white I was quite disappointed and will be returning this item to you

Forever People is the third volume in this B&W reprint series and completes the core or nucleus of Jack Kirby's Fourth World saga, prior to the comic series’ original cancellation. It's not as gripping or involving as New Gods or Mister Miracle before it, but it fleshes out the larger storyline and its concepts nicely. In particular, Anti-Life and the Anti-Life Equation feature prominently—first with Glorious Godfrey, a religious/cult leader with ties to Darkseid, and then in the form of several other characters, both good and bad, each of whom possesses the power to control others, with varying degrees of self-awareness. This volume also features more stories and scenes with Darkseid himself than any other title.

As another reviewer pointed out, the Forever People are basically ciphers—young super-beings from New Genesis, each with a unique gimmick but no real depth of personality—and their over-the-top chipperness plus a lack of one-on-one time makes it hard to bond with or care for them as characters. (The same is true of the Newsboy Legion in Jimmy Olsen.) Nevertheless, if you enjoy the Fourth World mythos, this title offers another vantage point from which to experience it. The Forever People are young, positive, and diverse in their talents; this makes them natural champions or symbols of Life (vs. Anti-Life) and opponents to Darkseid. The narrative thread is strong and satisfying through the first 6 issues, after which the stories feel more like one-offs, introducing throwaway characters or situations while still developing key Fourth World ideas (culminating unexpectedly in issue #8, "The Power!"). In issues #9-10, the DC character Deadman guest stars, and any larger narrative thrust is put on hold, until issue #11, when the group is suddenly being pursued by Devilance, a heretofore-unseen "bounty hunter" from Apokolips, who brings the comic to its premature end. It's a nicely big conclusion, but the plotting feels a bit contrived by this point.

If you like the Fourth World, you'll definitely want this. The art is great—five issues inked by Vince Colletta, six by Mike Royer—and the ideas are big. This one peaks earlier (issues #5-6) than the other volumes, which, combined with the flatness of the lead characters, makes it less satisfying. Note that the book also includes several backup stories, "Young Gods of Supertown", two of which feature the only appearances of Lonar of New Genesis with his battle horse Thunderer. They're short, but these backups are effective in maintaining and deepening the sense of a much larger narrative. As for the rest of this series, one more B&W collection of Mr. Miracle issues followed—Jack Kirby's Fourth World featuring Mr. Miracle—and then two Jimmy Olsen books, in color.

This book collects the eleven volumes of "The Forever People"--a comic written and drawn by the legendary Jack Kirby. "The Forever People" was a part of Kirby's epic "Fourth World" saga. Kirby was trying to capture the spirit of young people of the era (late 60s/early 70s) and succeeds to some extent though much of the dialogue seems forced. "The Forever People" tells the story of a group of young people who are part of the battle between the tyrannical Darkseid and the forces of his world against the good forces of New Genesis. The lead heroes themselves are pretty forgettable--and guests from the DC universe ranging from a Superman drawn by another artist to Deadman are very out of place. Thankfully, some of Kirby's best bad guys from Darkseid to his minions Desaad, Glorious Godfrey and Mantis are also in the book. While this edition is not in color, it is a much less expensive edition than the colorized versions currently on the market. The narrative travels very quickly and Kirby has a habit of bringing secondary and tertiary characters who are never seen again (the Forever People seem to change homes every two issues for example) and the good guys are not particularly noteworthy. But the exciting plots, epic vision and dastardly villains make this very enjoyable.
