I read the two Drift Marlo comics put out by Dell, but I also read that it was based on a comic strip that ran for about 10 years.  Any chance anyone has a collection or any stories from that run?

Title says it all: Drift Marlo #1, page 17 has a flipped (i.e. mirror image) page.

Krac, you are right. That back cover is right out of Stephen King. Wow. Your comments on chlorine gas reminds me of how callously they also handled atomic weapons in a few short years. Radiation? Civilians caught in a cross fire? Forget about it. Just blast away. But gas was always used in the serials in the 30's, along with cool stuff that would dissolve buildings on contact, and all lovingly put on the big screen.
Lady Satan sure looks new wave. I could see her playing bass in an all girl band at CBGB's. Nice hair. The art was probably the best in the whole book, and the plot kept things going no matter how improbable. See kids? HOGAN'S HEROES did NOT invent stupid lazy Nazis.

ok I'll go 1st

overall the book seems to be standard fare for the genre/time period. it is ok to me, but aside from black terror and phantom lady i'm not really into heroes from this era.

Madame Satan does present a striking image, I like the concept, very much a predecessor of our modern day deadly comic females like Black Widow and Vampirella.

However madame satan lost me when she sprayed the chlorine gas  "A dose of chlorine gas won't hurt them."  Ahem.... chlorine gas (along with mustard and phosgene) was widely used to horrific effect during World War I. Oh and how the heck is she not affected by it herself? The room is filled with it and she is not wearing a gas mask!

and that clown on the back cover? That is some disturbing imagery, yessiree

I am not sure when or how they appeared, but I found the words "Lady Satan" written on "The List".

Intrigued, and being a comic book dunce I had to do a bit of searching to locate her. Luckily, I managed to find the lady residing between the covers of Dynamic Comics #2.

The story and other content look good. So, for better or worse, my pick for this week's books is Dynamic Comics #2 http://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=24055. The main Lady Satan story we are concentrating on starts on our page 44.

Happy reading!!

Ok mopee167 I just noticed this.

I need to put on my Admin stomping boots here.


NEVER, EVER publically post even a portion of someone's (living or dead) Social Security Number, Driver's License Number, passport number, etc in a public place.

I realize you must have gotten it from elsewhere on the web, but that does not mean you need to repeat the bad practice. (the old "if your friends jumped off a cliff would you" rule applies here I think.)

As a security professional I can tell you with 100% certainty that if bad things can be done with a piece of information, the bad things will be done with that information.

In this day and age of identity theft information like SSNs should never be posted.

I have deleted the portion in question.

I apologize (to everyone) about coming on so strong, but this is a serious matter and our friendly little forum (which can be viewed by anyone on the web, even without a CB+ login) should not be a place where something bad could get started. I'm sure that not too much harm could come from the SSN of a man who has been dead for 29 years, but it's a slippery slope, best we stay off it.

Freelance: The story and characters have a real Victorian "ripping yarn" feel to them. This extends to the dialogue which I found to be very stilted. BUT I thought it was great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it

The Sooper Dooper page had a feeble currency joke. I have a much better and topical one (we have a new pound coin currently coming into circulation) .

The next Freelance story is a bit more exotic and "Asian". There were also a lot more words (well it felt like it) ... I struggled a bit, but it was worth it. Again I get a real pre-comicbook feel to the stories and dialogue.

It is followed by another and we have a full on femme fatale in the mould of the Dragon Lady.

Sooper Dooper: Another weak joke ... so here is another much better one

Quote

"I've given up asking rhetorical questions. What's the point?" - Alexei Sayle


The book ends with a final Freelance story. I now see my earlier Dragon Lady comment  was leading me somewhere. I now know where, this feels a lot like Terry and the Pirates  - with Freelance = Pat Ryan, etc.

Verdict: A hit. It was quite a "meaty" book and I wish I had set aside more time to read it. If I was around "back in the day", I'd certainly have bought this.
