MahaSAMatman-Sam


Licensed from the Lord of Light Company~ the entire super-rare series of unpublished Jack Kirby art work, originally commissioned for the film version of Roger Zelazny's LORD OF LIGHT and the 1000 acre Science Fiction Land theme park project in Reno, Toronto, Montreal and Colorado, from 1978 to 1980. Soon to be the subject of a major documentary.

The Lord of Light Art series was envisioned and designed by Barry Ira Geller and Jack Kirby, drawn with incendiary brilliance by Jack and inked with devastating intensity by Mike Royer. Each Kirby architectual masterpiece was created both as a film set design and theme park illustration. Each Art Print portrays the same kick-ass, roving birds-eye view action-packed style Jack was famous for, from the power of Captain America and Fantastic Four, to the majesty of Thor and the New Gods. As depicted in Wired Magazine May 2007, this is one of the Lord Of Light prints CIA spies used to secretly free six American Hostages from Iran.

History:

Jack Kirby: I got the basic ideas from the Great Battle in the novel, Lord of Light, where Roger Zelazny describes Sam's psychic abilities and personal powers as he goes into high battle with the Gods of Heaven. Yama, the God of Death, acts as Sam's charioteer! As with the majority of my experiences with him, Jack took the basic ideas and delivered a knockout punch, quickly delivering this Title graphic which really embodies the main character, Lord of Light. Sam's "Belt of the Binder" binds electricity, energy, and gravity, too. Boy, what I would do with a belt like that!

Lord of Light: Known as  the Lord of Light, Prince of Kapil, Mahasamatman, The Binder of Demons, Prince Siddhartha, and the Buddha -- but plain Sam to his friends. He was originally a chemist who created special hydroponics on the Starship India. On this planet he became one of the greatest warriors of the early planetary wars with his former colleagues who are now the Gods of Heaven. During much of that time, (almost 800 years), he was married to Candi, now known as Kali, Goddess of Destruction. She was a powerful warrior in her own right and they often fought side by side. These days, she plots for his death....

Here he is all decked out in his electronic Battle Armor with his fabled Talisman Belt of the Binder which expands his ability to control electrical and gravitational energies as he prepares to fight the Gods of Heaven and the demons of the Rakasha.

Science Fiction Land: 100 stories high statue at the entrance of the Street of the Gods. See "Brahma's Pavilions of Joy - ShowStreet"." Mahasamatman" structures around SFL.
