OMEGA THE UNKNOWN - WHO KNEW...?
OMEGA The UNKNOWN it was called, which was an apt title
considering that nobody seemed to know what it was about. There
was certainly a nod to elements of CAPTAIN MARVEL in the mix,
but the mag failed to capture my interest and I bailed out not too far
into the run. I should have held on because it lasted only ten issues
before being cancelled due to poor sales (so it seems I wasn't the
only one to jump from a plummeting 'plane).
However, it was good to see veteran artist JIM MOONEY as
the main man on a regular monthly mag again - even if it was only
for a short time. This superhero saga sings of the '70s to me in a way
that's hard to explain, but f you were around back then and bought
the comic, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. If not,
you'll just have to take my word for it and settle for the pulsating
piccies presented in this palpitating post. Ain't you lucky?!
If I ever manage to track down the remaining five issues, you
can expect part two. If not, then you're on your own, Charlie.
