E-Man #7
Published and © by Charlton, March 1975

Title: “TV Man”
Synopsis: A foe from E-Man’s past returns, this time sporting the ability to change E-Man into fictional monsters.

Writer: Nicola Cuti
Artist: Joe Staton

Review: The team of Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton consistently deliver the goods on E-Man. This issue offers a fantastic example of the book’s entertaining mix of reality and whimsy. Cuti is developing a strong supporting cast of characters while Staton’s visual aesthetic is perfect for this oddball series. Fun stuff!


Title: “Withering Heights”
Synopsis: After running out of gas, Rog 2000 battles a dangerous creature in a nearby, run-down inn. 

Writer: Nicola Cuti
Artist: John Byrne

Review: With its fantastic art and offbeat whimsy, Rog 2000 is proving to be the perfect backup feature for E-Man.

Grade (for the entire issue): A-

Second opinion: Recommended by The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide (second edition), 2003.

Cool factor: John Byrne’s Charlton work just ripples with potential.

Character quotable: “It’s bad enough when children don’t know their place. But now our own machines are talking back to us!” – Mrs. Boomblat, who obviously would not be a fan of Siri
