The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 74: 2001: A Space Odyssey #7, June 1977

A short entry today, as I only have about 5 minutes before this post is officially late! Kirby gives us a story of one of the New Seeds that he's been introducing for the last 6 issues, and it basically plays God and creates new life. We get some thought bubbles from the being, which, as it was in vernacular English, I have to admit takes away from the mystery of these weird little beings a bit. There's a nice Kirby full-page shot of planets linked by giant technological devices, but aside from that, this issue is pretty anti-climactic, especially considering that this is the last issue of the series in which we'll get an investigation of the New Seeds.

Yep, that's it. Short entry. Another break from 2001 tomorrow. Perhaps I'll just pick something at random from my Archie Comics section.

See you tomorrow.
