MAKIN’ LINKS!!! # 200–Bicentennial Edition!

We start out our 200th Makin’ Links column with a little-seen but very well-drawn for the time fan story from three early seventies issues of the venerable RBCC fanzine. Channeling Kirby, Eisner and others, Brad Caslor’s “The Massacre of the Innocents” offers up both Marvel and DC heroes chasing down a killer who’s gunning them down.

From the year of my birth, 1959, here’s a long and pleasingly drawn run of continuity from the classic sci-fi newspaper strip Buck Rogers by future Marvel utility artist George Tuska, also later the artist on DC’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes strip in the seventies.

Smokey Stover never ran in my local papers but I would see it from time to time in out of town newspapers as I was growing up in the seventies and it was like nothing I’d ever seen before or since. At age 9, I even based my own first comic strip on Smokey! Foo! Notary Sojac! If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, here’s a bunch of silly Sundays!

Finally, Smokey was featured occasionally in Dell’s Four Color series which offered different features every issue from the thirties through the sixties. Waffyjon’s “By the 10′s” feature offers up part one of a multi-part series presenting the wonderfully varied covers of that legendary series…or at least every tenth one.
