Now it's time for you latecomers who missed the now sold out and out-of-print early issues of this wild and wooly homage to Jack Kirby's cosmic capers of the sixties, seventies and eighties to jump on the bandwagon and get all caught up so you can plunge in for the next batch. Pittsburgh artist -- and Copacetic neighbor -- Tom Scioli has mastered the late-Kirby style, and not just the superficial stylings; he understands what's going on underneath as well, and uses his comprehension of the underlying mechanics of Kirby's vision to be able to rebuild it from the ground up to say something new (an ability perhaps best demonstrated in his self-published Myth of 8-Opus series, all issues of which are available here at Copacetic >plug, plug<). Joe Casey, the seasoned scripter of Gødland, sprinkles the dialogue with plenty of wit and keeps the plot one twist ahead.
