DC Comics has announced six one-shots featuring characters created by Jack Kirby, to be released in August to celebrate what would have been "King" Kirby's 100th birthday. 

Though specific details have not been announced, the one-shots will feature characters such as Mister Miracle (who has his own solo series also launching in August), the Black Racer, the Newsboy Legion, Darkseid, Orion, OMAC, and Manhunter.

Kirby created numerous characters for DC Comics after leaving Marvel in the late 60s, including the New Gods, who have become central to DC's mythology, especially the villainous Darkseid.

Titles and creative teams for the one-shots have not yet been announced, but are expected to be released in DC's August solicitations.
