Here’s the latest installment of long lost since forgotten comic books. Many of these comics are simply not spoken of anymore and SOME of these have no monetary value in the speculative market but do have a place in our hearts. Great stories and amazing creative talents accompany most of these books. Into the abyss, these comics have gone, but here they are once again. Buy them, read them, they’re fun.

Machine Man #1 (1984) This amazing 4-issue limited series was brought to us by the late great Herb Trimpe. Barry Windsor Smith handled all four of the “transformation” covers. Overall great comic.
Mephisto Vs. … #1 (1987) Mephisto wanted to fight everyone apparently back in the 80’s. So much so he got his own limited series. Each issue featured a different opponent. The battles included; Fantastic Four, X-Men, X-Factor, and the Avengers. Al Milgrom writes. John Buscema art.
Akira #1 (1988) Akira was the first major Manga series to ever hit at Marvel. 38 issues in all. Amazing storytelling and art in these comics. Writer Katsuhiro Otomo lead the way here. The last 2 issues in this series (1996) had Contributors Dave Gibbons, Mark Texeira, Larry Hama, John Romita Sr., Joe Mad and Warren Ellis. Near mint copies of Akira books will run a little bit in the wallet, but well worth it.
Shatter #1 Special Edition (1985) The first all computer-generated (Mac) digital print comic ever by First Comics (how appropriately named). Mike Saenz had all hands on deck with this “Mac” experiment. Art/inks/colors/letter/cover. When this comic came out, it was hot. Nowadays, well that’s a different story. One can purchase this comic for less than $2 on eBay. Go ahead, click the link or comic, buy it, you’ll own a part of pop culture history.
Iron Man Crash (1988) Here we have the first all-digital (Mac) graphic novel. This time from Marvel. Mike Saenz again had his hands all over the digital-first, this time with William Bates lending a hand.
Batman Digital Justice (1990) As usual it seems, DC Comics took their time coming around. Joining the digital era 5 years after the first computer-generated comic. DC went big though. 116 pages of computer-generated mac art featuring Digital Batman. Batman in the digital world was the grandson of Commissioner Gordon. First and the last appearance of Digital Batman.
Avengers #239 (1984) David Letterman’s 33-year run ended last night. What a run it has been. On a personal note; I still own recorded VHS tapes in my storage of this show back when I was going to school. I knew I couldn’t stay up that late so I set the VCR to record the show so I could watch it when I got home. What is a VHS tape and VCR? Google it. David Letterman’s first of many appearances in comic books happened right here. Written by Roger Stern, art by Al Milgrom. Cover collaboration by Milgrom and Joe Sinnott. A keeper for any David Letterman fan. So long Dave and thanks for making me laugh!
