A couple of covers from two underrated DC gems of the 1970s. Star Hunters in particular was a favourite of mine-I wish they'd bring it back and finish it!

Star Hunters was one of my favourites too. I think David Michelinie and Bob Layton's falling out with DC over the company's support for Rich Buckler, when he was found to have been swiping animation cels of spacecraft, precipitated their departure for Marvel and their classic run on Iron Man. I would love to see Michelinie, Layton and a decent penciller produce a proper conclusion, but then I'm still waiting for Doug Moench and Jim Baikie to finish off Electric Warrior and Robert Loren Fleming and Trevor Von Eeden to give us the true ending to Down Time in Thriller. Time Warp had a brilliant logo.

The cover to Time Warp #1 appeared in DC house ads for a couple of months before it was released and it absolutely fascinated me, but it was years before I found a copy. The first one I read was #3.

I've also been waiting years for Star Hunters to be concluded, though the big one for me is 2000AD's Dan Dare series from 1980. I have a horrible feeling Dan's never going to clear his name...

Quite a few, though sadly not the entire run (I don't own a complete run myself anymore, though I still have the means to get them reprinted. I keep meaning to).

The Stained Glass Scarlet cover is my favourite of that entire series. The early eighties were a quite extraordinarily good time for American comics. For comics in general, in fact.

Ah, the New Universe! I really liked those books (well, except Kickers Inc and Spitfire,, anyway). I wish Marvel would bring them back. Crying or Very sad

They printed a fair bit of dross (Kickers Inc and Spitfire had little going for them except the covers above, and Psi-Force didn't do a lot for me), but Mark Gruenwald & Paul Ryan's D.P. 7, Peter David & Lee Weeks' Justice and Jim Shooter and John Romita Jr's Star Brand were consistently good reads.  I loved Jeff Parker's 2006 one shot revival of Star Brand entitled Adventures in the Mulletverse and wish he would write some more New Universe stuff.

I think DP7 is something of an underappreciated great. It lasted 32 issues without ever running out of steam, and I thought most of the characters were fascinating. And Ken Connell in Star Brand was without a doubt one of the most realistic portrayals of an ordinary, not particularly noble man suddenly given great power. Even Mark Hazzard: Merc was a pretty decent read despite not being the kind of book I'd normally have followed. I was genuinely shocked by Hazzard's death!

Do you know if Jonathan Hickman's current run on the Avengers is worth reading? I think he's supposed to be using some New Universe concepts taken from on from Warren Ellis' newuniversal, which I've not read either. The $3.99 price tag has put me off sampling it so far.

I really liked Hickman's Fantastic Four run, but so far his Avengers stuff isn't really working for me. Too many characters who seem to have come out of nowhere for no particular purpose and not really been fleshed out, or even given a proper backstory (there were already about four different versions of Hyperion knocking about: why create another?) and while the White Event and the idea that the New Universe scenario happens throughout the multiverse is quite a cool one, it hasn't really gone anywhere so far and the new Star Brand and Nightmask are totally forgettable. I'm hanging in there so far, but without much in the way of optimism that it'll improve. I wish he'd just gone with the classic Avengers, to be honest.

Coincidentally, I recently bought up a stack of Epics I'd never read, including issues of Doctor Zero, Alien Legion and some of the others on there. I'll have to get around to reading them, and maybe post some here. I do remember Dreadstar and Coyote very well, though-as well as The Bozz Chronicles, which I'll also have to dig out...

Loved the Epic-line, except towards the end, when they became too odd for me.

There were the Moebius titles as well... Airtight Garage, for instance.

That's another one I've never read in its entirety! I keep meaning to track down the issues I dont have but never get around to it. I was an avid reader of Epic Illustrated, though.

I have quite a few of those! A very underrated little company, though their business practices were somewhat suspect.

At one point, they apparently had Howard Chaykin standing in the street outside the Marvel offices, directing freelancers around the block to Atlas...

Sadly there was just the one issue of Thrillogy.  Tim Conrad also contributed to a few other Pacific comics: Alien Worlds #1,  Pacific Presents #3 & 4 and Captain Victory & the Galactic Rangers #10 & 11.  After Pacific folded in mid 1984 Conrad went on to produce the Toadswart serial in Epic Illustrated #25-33, but I don't think he produced much after that, apart from writing a pretentious and incoherent Piranha Press series called Etc in 1989.

Somehow, the news of Cardy's death had totally passed me by. A shame, he was another one who never turned in a sub-standard job. We've lost too many from his generation lately.

I think the only two of those I remember are Ms Mystic and Megalith. Nice covers, though...

I hadn't heard about that - thanks for the heads up. Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente are usually decent writers and I see Mark Waid is going to be writing Doctor Spektor, so they sould be worth a look.

Anything written by Waid usually is. I've been loving his Daredevil run.

Just got hold of these two issues, with covers featuring my favourite DC character: the Golden Age Flash!

Hawkman's mask looks terrible on the cover of #213. What's the point of the black square on it?

Good question: no idea, maybe a bad attempt at shading, but aside from the black mark it's also the way his mask is drawn inside (it's a reprint of #137). You must admit though, Neal was on form on #215!
