MONSTER MASHUPS #36



There's no accompanying story to this joke cover for SABRINA GIANT #9, but it's Dan DeCarlo art, so it's worth seeing just for that.

RAR #36: BILL SILENT BEAR




Yesterday brought the news of the passing of comics-writer James Hudnall. Among his other credits, he credited the series ESPERS, a six-person team of psychic adventurers. The group included one Native American, Bill Silent Bear, who could use telekinesis for levitation.

I have been meaning to get to Marvel Comics' Talisman, a Native American superheroine. She was created by John Byrne but IMO Hudnall made her a more interesting character during his ALPHA FLIGHT tenure.
