I kind of expected it would be some crappy black and white reprints from old Charlton Comics. But boy was I surprised. It was all new never printed stories done as a tribute and continuation of those Charlton Comics.
It features a sturdy cardboard square bound cover with full glorious color interiors and quality paper ten times as nice as an old Charlton Comic. The book also has art and stories by lots of Big Name Comics Professionals as well as some fresh new talent. Nine stories in a multitude of genres. A couple continued but mostly done in one.
On the negative side it is a little pricey. $8.99 for 50 pages, but remember even the big two's comics are pricey. Now days you pay $4 for a small snippet of a story printed on cheap ultra thin paper with an even thinner glossy cover. I did the math and nobody at Charlton Neo is getting rich from these books. Which means it is produced for the very best of reasons which is as a Labour of Love.
Day Of Decision is a story about four young cartoon characters approaching the horrible possibility of aging. In Chapter 3 of the Flying Nurses Mark Wheatly provides a sexy matching painting. Then we go on a case with "Digger" Graves son of Charlton Comic host Dr. Graves.
Then we get the conclusion of an unpublished Peacemaker story by Joe Gill and Pat Boyette. Boyette's art has never looked better then in this printing with quality paper instead of what passed for regular Charlton paper.
After a Stinky Skunk strip and an informative article on Bobby Sherman and his comics we get my favorite story. World War Dinosaur is the start of a great story by Professional Roger McKenzie and artist Ruben Vera. Vera paints the strip in monochromatic colors.
We finish up with a Science Fiction story by Mort Todd which is a sequel from a story from a 1964 issue of Charlton's Space War. Then a Horror story by Chuck Dixon.
This is just so much fun.
