Like a streak of light, he arrives fashionably late!
Big Barda was my pick for this past week and I'm getting mine in just under the wire. As a young idiot in the 90s listening to Green Day and Our Lady Peace, I never got Jack Kirby at all, and I really never got the New Gods. I remember first encountering them when Barda and Orion joined Grant Morrison's JLA around issue #16 and finding them hopelessly embarrassing. Kids are stupid. I now love Kirby and rank Barda as my second favorite character of his, one of my favorite costumes of all time. It takes a certain swagger to pull off the kind of helmet that would make Galactus feel under-dressed, and Mrs. Miracle does it nicely.
