“The Marshal Was A Loner”
art by Jim Bentley.
So in my travel today I came across a childhood memory completely unrelated to my Roger persona, but it was something I needed to share. As a kid the General Lee was the coolest car in the world and seeing one up close I can honestly say it still ranks up there as one of the all-time favorites.
My brother and his bride drove away from their wedding reception in one of the originals. It was one of the proudest moments of his life.
Magnus, Robot Fighter #4. “Menace from the Depths” Cover art by Russ Manning. Underwater food-processing facilities are sabotaged by a robot that wants to destroy all mankind.
Two great things about this cover. First, check out the head on that robot! It’s a “think-rob” so of course its head is huge. Second, Magnus proves to be the exception to the rule by being a male wearing a cellophane suit.
Turned in my final G.I.Joe cover this week (at least for a little while - it is not one of the ones pictured above). I wanted to publicly acknowledge my editor for this series, Carlos Guzman at IDW. Creating these covers was an exciting opportunity for me and it turned out to be a very rewarding, enjoyable process. I hope that comes across in the work, and thanks again, Carlos for your valuable feedback, encouragement, and patience.

Classic cover and interior page by Wally Wood (pencils) and Joe Orlando (inks) from Space Detective #2, published by Avon, November 1951.
“If ever there was a comic book tailor-made to my tastes, it has to be Avon’s Rod Hathaway, Space Detective, published from July of 1951 to July of ‘52 - for a total of four issues. I’ve never actually seen or read a copy, but from the covers - Issue #1 by Joe Orlando, inked by Wally Wood! - and the story titles featured thereon (“Opium Smugglers of Venus,” “Sea Nymphs of Neptune,” “Metal Murderers of Mars,” et al), I suspect I’d love every page!”
In space, detectives solve crimes by shooting aliens in the head.
Well they never said his methods were subtle.
