Ken Steacy & Gene Day's Electric Warrior

From 1975, here's Canadian zine Orb, and some real early Ken Steacy / Gene Day work.
I suspect this started life as a college project, it's heroes being a couple of students who invent a super-scientific samurai sword, as you do.
And if you can write the rest of the story yourself from there, that very genericness is what makes it fun. This is fan stuff, done with a pure love and excitement for the medium, and the kind of thing we all did as kids.
Except, unfortunately for us, we weren't all Ken Steacy & Gene Day.
