Oh, man. I REMEMBER that. The bizarre name, plus the accompanying artwork (Drax the Destroyer being turned inside out) made an impression on my ten-year-old brain that has lasted the thirty years since.Post the next panel! Please, post the next panel!Doug M.
I'd actually support the Death Penalty in the UK if it was death by Time-Mind-Sync-Warp.
Who wrote that, and when did it come out?(Actually, I really wish the comicsblogosphere as a whole would more often mention publication dates rather than just issue #s. The date carries so much context that doesn't come with the issue #, especially considering renumberings and short-lived series. Hardcore fans may have a mental map of issues-to-dates, but I don't.)
"First, be assualted by fists of shattered illusions and broken promises!"Man, Jim Starlin.I read this story the other day. This and Warlock are really the nadir of Marvel's "trippy" phase.It's funny how barely 20 years later Thanos actually calms down into a more standard villain, though I do miss the days when he'd get a whole page in the middle of a story to rant about how he had no heart but he had DREAMS.
Jon: That's Captain Marvel #28 from September 1972 (or 1973?) written and drawn by Jim Starlin. And I may have to post what happens when Drax experiences the Time-Mind Sync-Warp, because it's freaky!
Man, I am still flipped out by that '70's Starlin work. Anyone else think his CM and Warlock stuff deserve the Masterwork treatment?
"Let's do the Time-Mind Sync-Warp agaaain..."
It's too bad they don't have a Captain Marvel or Warlock essential. I know the latter probably doesn't have the biggest of followings at the moment but it'd be great to see some more cosmic-wayout-ness in the stores. Enough with the everyman/street level thing! Godland is so lonely all by itself......but then I guess that's part of why it's a good book.
If I recall correctly, this particular chunk of the story was guest-scripted by Mike Friedrich, not one of Marvel's most...uhm...talented writers.
It was a job well done, Michael.An excellent piece.Toronto Pearson Airport TaxiToronto Airport TaxiPearson Airport Taxi
