Today’s arrival is a purchase that was inspired by an earlier Mail Call, as also seen in the most recent Unbagging.

As a kid, I recall flipping through the pages of Comics Scene magazine and seeing an ad for this comic and wishing I could pick it up, as I had previously encountered the character in E-Man.

So, after picking up that complete Charlton run of E-Man recently, I decided I might as well grab this, too, even though I already have almost all of the content.

There are, however, some extra bits that aren’t featured in the E-Man back-ups, and honestly, the art looks better in black and white than it does in color (thanks to the notoriously low quality of the printing press Charlton used).

More things are still on their way, so more Mail Call posts will appear as they arrive.


Born and raised in the sparsely populated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Jon Maki developed an enduring love for comics at an early age.
