Nic Cuti and Joe Staton didn't just work on the wonderful E-Man while at Charlton of course, the team also did a few early issues of Steve Austin's adventures, like here behind a Neal Adams cover.
Waitaminute, how did Charlton get the contract for The Six Million Dollar Man? Were Marvel asleep at the wheel? Well, maybe it was this tale that swung the deal.
It's a fun, action-packed techhno-voodoo adventure that delights in some great early Staton art, but it's the breathtakingly blatant advertising for the Steve Austin doll ( hem hem I mean 'action figure' ) that sticks in the memory.
As if the unsubtle plotline wasn't enough, check out that last panel.
