Ultimate Geek Fu

They Just Don't Write 'Em Like That Any More

Okay, in recent weeks we've been talking a lot about comic books, and it occurs to me that the discussion has been shaped largely by the products of DC and Marvel, with an occasional nod to Dark Horse, Malibu, or of course, Slave Labor Graphics.

But that's hardly the history of comics, only the roll-call of the survivors. Over the decades many titles, characters, companies, and entire genres have come and gone, sometimes leaving behind little except the vague memory that once, there was a Charlton Comics.

So that's today's question. If you had it in your power, what one comic book—excluding Southern Knights, Henry—would you bring back from the Great Pulp Beyond? Blackhawk? Metal Men? Magnus, Robot Fighter? Casper, The Friendly Ghost? Howard the Duck? Dial H for Hero? What is the most obscure and, in your opinion, unfairly overlooked, comic book or character that you can think of?

Let the arguments begin.

ULTIMATE GEEK FU runs every Wednesday. Have a question that's just bugging the heck out of you about Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Battlestar Gallactica, Farscape, Firefly, Fringe, Heroes, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Smallville, The X-Files, X-Men, or pretty much any other SF-flavored media property? Send it to slushpile@thefridaychallenge.com with the subject line, "Ultimate Geek Fu," and we'll work it into the queue.
