Story Spotlight on Darkseid vs Galactus: The Hunger

Many times fans give pros suggestions and more times than not, they fall on deaf ears. It’s understandable, legal reasons are usually the cause. But one fan gave John Byrne an idea so amazing that DC and Marvel tracked him down and asked his permission to let the story be made. What question was that?

 

“Galactus tries to eat Apokolips!”

 

“WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF THAT?” Byrne and George Perez asked each other

 

And from that fan came this little story done entirely by Byrne where it asks that very question. Set prior to the events of the Galactus Trilogy in Fantastic Four, Galactus has made his way to the worlds of the new gods. However New Genesis, upon receiving a warning from the Source, hid their world leaving Darkseid’s planet to fend for itself.

 

Despite being stated to be in the weakest state he’s been in Eons, Galactus is still a large threat to the world controlled by the Dark God! Can even the might of Darkseid be able to push back Galactus? And what of the Silver Surfer and Orion, which of them is the strongest warrior? And HOW does Darkseid know so much about Galactus and Surfer? MOST of these questions are answered (except the last one) in this great tome!
