How Now, Cow Town

Another Comic That Never Existed!

A Gem of the Bronze Age, Cowtown Comics was a team up book featuring Cow Puncher, an invulnerable brawler, teaming up each month with another hero. Frequent partners included the Kansas City Rattlesnake, Jet Star, The Jade Jack, and Rumble Bee.

The stories were modern takes on western themes featuring our heroes protecting small towns, car thieves as cattle rustlers and of course, showdowns at high noon.

Cowtown Comics ran in this format for 94 issues before being re-titled as Cow Puncher & the New West Heroes, a team book featuring Cow Puncher leading a group of young upstarts including The Sketch, Diamondback, Kid Cryo, and Jackalope.

Spouting Flies

My contempt for politicians is well known.  With a presidential election right around the corner I'm contemplating locking myself in a remote shack until about August of 2017.

Dual Cassette

I loved the cassette format. Portable, durable, and the first audio format that allowed you to make your own mixes of music.
