2001, A Space Odyssey

 20SO   (Marvel, 1976-1977)

Arthur C. Clarke’s “2001” took readers and moviegoers on a fantastic journey, from the dawn of man, to the quest for the stars. That journey was somehow guided by strange black “monoliths”: mysterious remnants of an alien race, or possibly a direct link to a cosmic intelligence. It would be a monolith, appearing in a primordial lake, that would encourage the development of technology for our ape ancestors. Millennia later, man would discover another monolith—on the moon. Later still, there would be others. Wherever the monoliths appeared, they touched mankind, driving man onward toward its destiny.

Artist Jack Kirby draws from this stunning vision, taking us further into the world of tomorrow. Once again, the monoliths appear, shaping the world through their strange intelligence. It is a fantastic voyage starting in the future, and leading to the stars themselves.
