The Spirit Jam

As it's Monday, I'm sure we could all do with a pick-me-up, so from 1981, here's the absolutely- beyond-incredible Spirit Jam, starring, well, just about everybody! Here's associate editor Cat Yronwode's introduction:
" Like a musical jam session, this 36 page extravaganza does have a cohesive refrain, a basic plotline. But within that context each contributor was given virtually unlimited freedom to create characters, situations, dialogue & subplots. The result is a story which meanders from serious adventure to parody and back again, with numerous in-jokes along the way. "
Imagine It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World in comic book form, and you have some idea of how insanely brilliant this piece is. Luckily, you don't have to imagine, 'cos here's the whole thing.!


  1. Yet again you take me back. I had/have this. Great stuff

  2. Working on a borrowed pc (I'll be sooo glad when mine's fixed) leaves me little time for commenting on my fave blogs, but I have to take time to tell you what a bang-up job you continue to do here. It's pieces like this that make me love--and envy--your far-out blog, Pete!

  3. Praise indeed from His Grooveness. As Nick Fury would say: Awright, awright! Cut it out, ya know I blush easy!
