Review: Police Action #3

A pair of law enforcement tough guys – the NYPD’s Sam Lomax and cop-turned-P.I. Luke Malone – blow away bad guys with Magnums. Gary Friedrich serves up two crime stories long on silly and short on grit, while the work of artists Mike Sekowsky and Mike Ploog suffers from unsympathetic inking.

Review: Devilina #2

Satan sends Corrupta to Greenwich Village in a sneaky effort to capture his sister Devilina’s soul. Atlas (Seaboard) apes Warren’s B&W-magazine style with this C-list collection stories from the likes of Ric Estrada, John Albano, Frank Thorne and others.

Review: Targitt #2

Targitt heads to Alaska to foil a plot by an American corporation and Third-World powers to manipulate world oil prices. Gabriel Levy and Ric Meyers’ story might have limited appeal, but the visual storytelling – by 1950s comic-book artist Howard Nostrand – is strong.

Review: Tales of Evil #3

A “hitherto undiscovered bacterial force” “activates” algae and turns a washed-up Olympic swimmer into Man-Monster. Yes, this uninspired origin story by Tony Isabella, Rich Buckler and Mike Vosburg is as bad as it sounds. But the backup tale – featuring art by Enrique Badía Romero – is decent.

Review: Tales of Evil #2

A hideous-looking bog beast escapes from the La Brea Tar Pits to explore and study the human condition. This lead feature by John Albano and Jack Sparling has a spark of potential – but just a spark. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the rest of this poor-man’s EC.
