We don't need another hero

Tonight's Stupid Comics provides an important public service announcement, so don't miss it!


  1. The more obscure books on Ebony Warrior's bookshelf (How to Eat to Live, Message to the Blackman in America) were penned by Elijah Muhammad of the Nation of Islam, the implication being that these books are "too radical" for a mainstream bookstore. Seriously, for Black History Month, there needs to be a round-up of these black nationalist comics. I can never get enough of them, though not for the reasons intended by the authors.

  2. Ooo boy, does this bring back memories of '80s CBG ads!
    I recall the ad for "Night Masters" that proclaimed that the heroes were "Framed by the GOVERMENT!" (sic)

    "Terror Knight" was a shameless ripoff of the Black Terror as it was, but they really rubbed it in with a story drawn in their version of the Golden Age style: "Captain Terror Clashes with Lieutenant Nazi" (who apparently was Capt. Marvel's enemy Captain Nazi after a demotion). Captain Terror suddenly had a young sidekick named Tim (as the Black Terror did).

    So Rochester had its own superhero in "Mantaman"? Syracuse had one, too: "Captain 'Cuse," which was a newspaper strip, not a comic book AFAIK.

    The cover of "Ebony Warrior" is decent but that interior art... at least it's better than "Starray" and on the same level as "Zwanna."
