Jack Kirby captures 2017 in a 1970 splash page.

While I don’t think of Forever People as the summit of Kirby’s Bronze Age work (as I’ve mentioned before), #3, with its portrayal of the authoritarian Justifier cult (“Life makes you doubt — anti-life makes you right!”), is pretty dead-on as a take on Nazism and on right-wing extremism in general. Just look at the page below (all rights remain with current holder) — does that not seem creepily relevant to now?
