Comment: I MOSTLY HIGHLY recommend this book for the Target and the Targeteers story and especially the art! Don't miss it! (George) "Inky" Roussos is a character in the story and it appears that Roussos inked the story (Bob Wood signed the art), or Roussos or Roussos and Robinson ghosted the art entirely. The art looks just like Batman art of the era, down to names written on building fronts and stock Batman poses. Way cool story!!! Bob

Comment: An interesting observation, you're right in that the story looks a LOT like a Batman story of the era. Most of the attention I've seen on this book is that it has one of at least two different Hitler parodies Wolverton did in Spacehawk.

Comment: This issue also contains the wonderful Spacehawk story in which the villainous dictator "Moosleer" appears; Mooseler is a combination of Hitler and Mussolini and the story is very entertaining. All in all, this is an outstanding issue.
