Orion Was Always His Own Greatest Enemy

"Orion Was Always His Own Greatest Enemy" from New Gods vol.3 #13 (DC, 1990) by Mark Evanier, Paris Cullins and Willie Blyberg
Mark Evanier, a good friend and sometime assistant of Kirby's, seemed a good choice to continue the New Gods' saga, and he did initiate the title's longest run (28 issues), but none of the issues I've read have been all that remarkable. Maybe it's that Paris Cullins, an artist I normally like a great deal, can't approach the kind of grandeur Kirby brought to the series. It's all a little cartoony for me. But perhaps I need to revisit the series in its entirety.
