The Atlas Archives
- A history of the short-lived comics publisher, Atlas/Seaboard (1974-1975)
10 years ago
LOL, thanks! The history page is fascinating--I'd only heard part of it before--and the cover galleries are great. I had no idea how much talent was involved in Atlas. I have issue #3 of the Scorpion and of Tiger-Man somewhere in my collection with very fond memories attached. Hopped on my spider-bike (with banana seat), rode up to the local convenience store and bought 'em off a comics spinner rack when I was just a little kid. How many things in that last sentence don't exist anymore? :-)
I've a bit of a soft spot for Howard Chaykin's work, so I was pleased to see some of his gear amongst this, which I'd never heard of. Grand link.
Recently hanged Revolutionary War highwayman Matthew Dunsinane is going to suffer the tortures of perdition, thanks to his new found buddy Satan... unless, of course, they can make a "deal". Lucifer wants Matthew to keep him supplied with souls for his domain since evil people deserve to die ! Armed with a few parlor tricks supplied by Satan, the Grim Ghost is sent into the 20th Century to harvest his crop of evil-doers. He rides mounted atop a jet black steed laughing like a demon from the darkest pits of hell only to battle evil in our time.
I just thought that bore repeating.
