Comic Collected In: Captain America and the Falcon: Nomad TP
“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road’ll take you there.” That was one of the many nuggets of wisdom imparted by “the quiet Beatle.” George Harrison went on to flourish in his artistic endeavors after the (inarguably) greatest rock band to ever exist parted ways in 1970. In fact, he was the first Beatle to release a solo album.
Supernatural Thrillers #10 - The Living Mummy. It’s a very basic story, with a very basic flashback in it. And some obvious parallels with the events happening ‘now’. But it works very well. Largely because main character is so interesting. 6/10
Daredevil #116 - Good balance between story, character and action. And I love the Gene Colan art. Black Widow’s problems are surprisingly ‘realistic’ and - consequently - have more impact on the reader. 7/10
Serial killer Paul John Knowles was involved in a three month crime spree that involved the murder of up to 35 people, both men, women and children. Knowles was arrested in December 1974 but never faced trial for his multiple crimes, as he was shot and killed by an FBI agent when trying to escape custody.
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #7 - Sons of the Tiger. Very different to earlier episodes, this one has a fresh feel to it. The trio are split up, and Bob gets some quality coverage. Also: there are robots now. That’s different! Brought a smile to my lips, it did. 7/10
