Hey, wanna read a lost Bronze Age Jim Steranko strip you've never seen before? 'Course you do! The Block was produced by Jim & Byron Preiss in 1971 as an anti-drugs mini comic, was distributed to american public schools, then reprinted in 1973 in Steranko's Comixscene, and has presumably never been seen since. Massive thanks to website Seduction Of The Innocent for uploading this, so I could sneakily liberate it for the cause.
And here's Steranko's Nick Fury in some wonderful promo pieces for one of Phil Seuling's early comic conventions:
Here, with suitably controversial cover, is Roy Thomas and Alex Nino's fantastic adaptation of Michael Moorcock's Behold The Man. I can't really add anything to Rascally's introduction here, as he says it all.
Like everybody else, I throw the words 'classic' and 'masterpiece' around a lot on this here blog, but honestly, Behold The Man is both of those things and more.
And, on a lighter note, it's obvious that Nino had no idea what a Teddy Boy was when he did this piece.
I'm a writer and cartoonist, responsible for ' The Infernal Gods Of Electric Disaster' & Essential Showcase Presents: Stan & Jack, along with the odd thing I've done with old pal Sean Phillips.
I think the 1970's was the best era in comics' history. And I can prove it...
