BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

Nothing new here. How do I know, because I remembering buying this book from the drugstore when it first came out! This title was an amazing edition to my collection back then. Gerber and Brunner's genius comes through in buckets. And this version just reminds us what that time period had to offer us. And along with the vintage original ads (Yes, I did have the Big Jim and Evel Knievel action figures), this one makes me yearn for what I once had. Weirdness and Nostalgia mixed into one big package with a Spider-Man cameo that made sure the book would sell. After you read this one, start hunting down the rest of the series in your favorite comic shop's back issues because it only gets weirder from here.

I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
